DIY Drop-Waist Dress

I love sleeping. I will sleep until it is dangerously close to the time I need to leave my apartment and it has suddenly become an absolute emergency for me to bolt out of bed, brush my teeth, wash my face and throw on mascara and an outfit. This is why I love dresses. One item of clothing and a pair of shoes and you’re out the door. I wish every day were seventy five and sunny so life and dressing could always be this simple and layerless. You can imagine my excitement when I saw the Band of Outsiders S/S 11 half-skirt half-shirt dress. It immediately made me think of Frankenstein- two items of clothing patched together to make a new item of clothing. No longer just a skirt or just a shirt, the DIY below shows you how to make your own easy-morning drop-waist dress.

Cut your skirt leaving yourself a foot or more of the bottom portion to work with. You might want to hold this up while you wear your shirt to measure how long this piece needs to be. Tack the pleats after you cut it to hold these down to help make the next step easier.

    Did you overlock the cut edge, or turn it under?

  3. Would a tartan skirt look ok with a white shirt? Just wondering.
