4th of July Summer Holiday Dress

What are you most proud of? Using a thrift store top and fabric from my stash to make something I will wear. It feels good. What advice would you give someone starting this project? It is super easy. I didn't use a pattern. Just cut off the bottom of the tank top and allow for enough fabric to gather around waist. I sewed elastic to the fabric by stretching it as I sewed to create a gathered edge. Then attach that waist (right sides together) to the bottom of the tank. It helps to have a wide belt to hid the seam. Finally, hem the bottom and you have a new dress!
