Circle Skirt Dress

      A few weeks ago I found this awesome floofy circle skirt at the thrift store across the street from campus. I go there way more than I should because they have a bin of sewing notions for 50 cents ;)
It's a really long skirt; it hits me almost at my ankles. This doesn't look very flattering on me but I loved the print so I got it anyway, paid $4.25 yo!
     Then I had the idea to wear it as a dress. It was really tight though, turns out my waist and upper chest collarbone area aren't the same size. So I ripped the waistband off and turned it into a belt. I put elastic on the skirt's waistband to make sure it stays up. So now I have a pretty strapless dress and I could theoretically wear it as a skirt still!
 Student Senate hosted a formal, so I actually had someplace to wear the dress! I made boyfriend take cheesy homecoming-style picture with me :D
I really meant to get some pictures of it on the hanger, but I never did, and now I'm at home on break and the dress is still at school. And I wrote this post at least two weeks ago, so I'm calling it good and posting.
