A few weeks ago I wrote a post about a reject dress I pulled out of my daughter’s closet.  The dress was worn out and ill fitting and even had a stain on the top half.  In the post, I talked about my inspiration to convert the dress into a skirt with some appliquéd flowers on the front.

Today I finally completed the makeover, and I am totally happy with the results.  I simply cut off the top half and stitched out two different funky flower appliqués in a turquoise fabric. I finished it off by putting some elastic in for the waist.  I didn’t even have to hem it as I kept the hem from the original dress.

I made the flower designs a while back after being inspired by a textile I purchased. Since then, these appliqué designs have been favorites of mine. I even stitched them out on a reject skirt of my own, and I wear it all the time.

I think the red skirt made from the reject dress looks DARLING. I am totally into the red / turquoise combination.  It’s a bit unconventional and mod.  I love this skirt and my daughter, Adelaide, loves it too.

Like the funky appliqué designs?  I just reposted them on my Etsy store in three different sizes.
