Peek into Little Bundy’s part real and part 'wish-list' closet for second-hand, recycled, upcycled, retro, vintage and high street fashion with a little bit of designer indulgence for good measure. Share my drooling over things I don't own but covert from a far and enjoy the fruits of my fashion expeditions. Fashion, to me, is something to enjoy, take pleasure in, to explore and to share.

From skirt to dress, no sewing required
I got the skirt pictured below from a jumble sale for 20p ages ago and had almost forgotten all about it. I really liked the print on the fabric but wasn't keen on the length so had ideas of shortening it and just wearing it as a cute summer skirt but fortunately I hadn't gotten round to cutting it up yet! I came across the skirt again recently when I was going through my projects box and it occurred to me that rather than cutting it up I might be able to wear the skirt as a dress. I simply undid the top two buttons of the skirt, it already had an elasticated waist which because an elasticated back so with a little help from a belt i was set!
Before - a pretty but not very me floral skirt
After - a lovely funky summer dress
So what do you think? From old skirt to new summer dress without any cutting, sewing or anything! What more could a girl ask for!
