Hello! Another summer DIY tutorial today. Just about the same time last year, I attempted my first DIY Matching Cropped Top and Skirt project, the results were fabulous and I’ve always wanted to try the technique on another dress.
I found the perfect summer dress from Joe Fresh (on sale now!) however, it was a little too big for me, so I decided to slim it down a notch and also transformed it from a gorgeous one piece to a versatile and fun matching two piece cropped top and skirt number.
You will need a sewing machine for this project, but don’t worry, only a few stitches are required!
I love the way it turned out and now I can have two pieces for the price of one! Feel free to apply this same tutorial to any dress or jumpsuit!
- A one piece dress (preferably with a built in waist line)
- Seam Cutter
- Sewing Machine
- Black wide elastic band (cut to your waist size with half an inch extra)
I hope you liked this cute two piece matching cropped top and skirt project. So easy to tackle on your own. I hope you’ll find time to be inspired and create something of your own!
If you’re looking for some dress options for this project, here are some hand-picked ones from yours truly! Enjoy!
That looks so, so lovely!! What a great idea to change one of my old dresses and make it look much more special.
wow.. i love it !!!
This is gorgeous! Did you leave the end of the zipper (on the top) exposed? Or did you snip it off / pin it under?
I love your DIY , totally cool and a good way to recycle old clothes. Keep it up we . We enjoy so much lots of love ❤
