So I started off with this hawaiian "dress" its basically a loose tank dress. There is ZERO shape to it!
Now I thought about what I wanted to do with it and then it hit me! Its Hula Season fast approaching for us performers/entertainers. Usually I just tote my hula skirt on a hanger but I don't have a garment bag for it and I have always wanted to make one just haven't been able to find pretty hawaiian fabric. So I decided to use this dress and turn it into a garmet bag for my hula skirt!
All I did was sew right across from the armholes (leaving room for hangers to come through) backstitched to ensure it wouldn't come apart I didn't need to sew the sides b/c they were already done and this dress is basically a box!
Cut off the excess material. Turn the right side out. And Ta-Da! Done! Easy peasy! 10 mins!
So here's the skirt i wear
Now here it is covered! It was the perfect width and length, I could not have asked for anything more!
Here's to a easy refashion! Ahola!
