I found this beautiful sheer and opaque striped maxi dress on the weekend (at Sirens) and like all maxis, it was too short for me. I couldn't pass up the eye-catching fabric though and decided to purchase it for $19 and re-fashion it into a maxi skirt.
It turned out beautifully and I can't wait to wear this on vacation and come summer!
More steps after the jump if you're interested in how I did this...
Taking the maxi and a sharp pair of scissors, I cut just below the underarms straight across.
