I've had this in my refashioning stash for ages. I used to love this dress, but the style is rather unflattering for me. I loved the fabric and didn't want to get rid of it.
I look the skirt off the bodice, and used my dressform to drape the skirt. I'm not sure this was the best way of doing this as getting the seams even was rather tricky - I think i'll stick to pattern drafting for this type of refashion in the future.
I put a box pleat in at centre front, darts to front and back and a lapped zipper from my stash. I decided on a faced waistband as I like skirts that sit a little lower than my natural waist.
