A Free Refashion!

A free refashion is just what I needed this week!  Not long ago, my church had a clothing swap.  We all brought clothes that, for various reasons, we didn't need anymore.  Then we all went through them and took home what we wanted.  It was so much fun!  It was quite funny because one lady and I went home with almost all of each others' clothes!  I did end up bringing home this dress as well.

I debated about what I should do with this beauty.  Ultimately, I decided to try a dress.  If that didn't work I could always cut it off and make a skirt.  I also knew that I wanted to turn it around backwards so the buttons were in the back.

The first things that needed to go were that collar and the sleeves! 

Then the pockets

After that I just took in the sides a couple inches, cut off about 8 inches and hemmed!  

This dress screams for layers!

Where am I looking here?  No idea.

Which of the 3 looks is your favorite?
