Halfway to complete success

A day or so ago, I posted the dress I found in Vinnies that I planned to convert into a separate chiffon jacket and pleated maxi skirt. Well, I'm halfway there!

I took the jacket for a test-run today and I have to admit, I am ecstatic at what I now have from a $6 dress, an unpicker and a bit of hemming. The only thing I might still do is to nip in the sides for a closer fit, but otherwise, I adore the colour and it's a perfect addition to a Summer ensemble.

Half of the final product - only $3!

Let's hope I'll be able to say the same for the skirt!
