Have You seen J. Crew's Chartreuse?
It is bright, bold, and beautiful.
When my sister Jenna sent me this dress to wear to her wedding I started panicking. The dress came in a size 14 people and that is a lot of chartreuse!
I had to take the sides in and let out the hem and it was barely long enough for me to wear. (Sorry, modesty is the best policy.) But I wore it, and I liked it.
And ever since the wedding, this poor J. Crew dress has been hanging in my closet. I tried it on recently and it was huge. I knew that I wouldn't be wearing it again so I decided to alter it into a skirt for Kate.
Kate was so excited to be able to help me make a skirt for her. I took out the zipper so that I would be able to use it on another project. Then I simply cut the length off the dress, including the amazing lining, and sewed an elastic in the waist.
Kate put this outfit together all by herself. She is so independent.
It was such an easy project. And it was fun doing it with Kate.
Now the only problem I have is Jealousy.
I wish I had a skirt in that color!
