New trapeze dress

I made a summery dress a week or so ago, out of an Old Navy trapeze top. I couldn't figure out what to wear with it, as it made me look like a walking rectangle with no waist or hips. But it fit well otherwise.

Old shirt, old dress

It was cute, so I couldn't just not wear it. It was already pretty long, so I didn't have to add much to it to make a dress. I took the bottom off a gigantic muu muu I got at the Salvation Army and sewed it to the bottom. The rest of the muu muu will be in at least one more project. Since the bottom of the muu muu was hemmed nicely, I didn't have to do any hemming. I just sewed it to the dress and up the sides of the added pieces (muu muu was wider than the trapeze dress. I kept the flared shape for the addition, too.

It's a little wrinkled here, but it's very comfortable and casual. :-)

That's really cool. I love the idea of taking something really ugly and salvaging it!
