Red 80's Skirt- Day 2

Rachel ChurchComment

The 80s skirt that lost all of its elasticity is now being turned into a dress.  I have a lot of polyester/cotton blend vintage material sitting around, so I decided to use a coordinating blue from the skirt print to make a sleeveless top.  I'm attaching it to the skirt and then adding in a new elastic band at the waist.  I think this dress will look great with a belt, so I'll add in some belt loops too.  The color is still to be determined, but I'll choose another color from the wild skirt pattern for the loops.  As you can see, there are plenty of colors to pick from.  Check back in tomorrow to see how the final product comes out!
