Recycled skirt for Sara the Librarian

Sara had a dress that she wanted to be a skirt and I agreed to try. The first snag I ran into was that while the skirt was cotton, the top was stretchier. I chopped off a sleeve and tested it - seemed to sew ok.

Then I cut off the bodice

I tacked the top to keep it from fraying then folded it over and sewed it along the seam

A little tricky, but I think it worked 

There's a space left to put in an elastic waistband and/or drawstring as desired.
