lace skirt refashion

I got this Banana Republic lace skirt at Salvation Army for $2. It has been sitting around here for a few months as I couldn't figure out what to do with it. Then finally when I tried on my blue dress on 4th of July I got the perfect idea.
My blue dress is pretty short and I have seen on lots of girls wearing a lengthening slip. So I went ahead and cut the bottom off and sewed it to a cheapy walmart slip-
Fits perfect and looks cuter!

Sorry for another faceless post but I do my sewing on random days when the hubby takes the little one out of the house. So I am in my pjs and then just throw this on for a quick pic =D

I do that ALLLLL the time!! And, it's always a white skirt I tuck under dresses letting the hem hang out. Fabulous look! I'm following with gfc
