School Attire-Part Two

Here is the second back to school transformation from our donate pile.
This cute top started out as a wide leg pair of pants.
I was excited when I found this vintage pattern. Because of the seam down the middle, it worked perfectly for a pants to dress refashion.
The pattern barely fit, but it worked.
I love the simplicity of this dress. It looks great with skinny jeans and a white t-shirt, but is neutral and can be paired with all sorts of things.
It works with leggings and boots
or a cardigan.
I love the clean lines and the Linen fabric.
Hooray, I think we are going to get a lot of use out of this one.

Nice job reusing materials and making it into something usable and cute! The dress is very versatile. Might be cute with a flower baroque too.
