Time to Re-Think that Stash of Dress Patterns!

In keeping with my resolution to make more separates for myself this year, here is one of my recent projects.

The pattern is a 1945 reproduction from Eva Dress.  The original pattern is for a fantastic dress, which I have made twice!   It turns out, this dress makes a lovely little skirt (at least I think so).

Time to re-think all of those dress patterns – they really make excellent skirts!  Just add a waistband and you are ready to go!

More pictures and information about the altered construction of my new skirt may be found over at Lilacs & Lace.
