Thrift shop find! Just a quick snip-snip-snip to refashion a dress into a skirt.
Hit up the thrift store to find a dress with a wide elastic band at the waist or under the bust. If the elastic is under the bust, try to find a dress that is one size smaller than you'd usually wear. This will make the skirt fit well around the waist.
Use a small scissors or seam ripper to cut the top away from the elastic band.
Pull away any bits of broken thread. Save the top part of the dress for later ...
