I realized that I totally forgot to share this dress that I made for myself using the Vintage Frock tutorial.
I had this thrifted silk tank in my repurpose pile. I love the color and feel of the fabric, but it was really short and too wide. So I took in the side seams and added the elastic waistband (from those suspenders) and skirt just like I did with Paige dress in the tutorial.
If you missed it, here's a photo of Paige's:
A couple of you asked if it would work for an adult, so here's the proof! You could use just about any blouse on the top. My only word of advice would be to make your elastic a little smaller than you normally would. Mine lost a little elasticity when I sewed the skirt on so it is a little loose on me. Beans.
I really hope this inspires you to make your own version. It was so easy, I promise!! In fact, my skirt was made with two non-fraying fabrics so it was super quick.
Here's to the beginning of a wonderful week!
