Every closet has a garment that has 'potential', but for some reason never gets worn. The print or fabric can be beautiful, but if it does not make you feel good it simply won't and shouldn't come out of the closet. I bought a beautiful silk maxi skirt at the Calypso outlet in Soho a few years ago for $10. I purchased it knowing that the fabric alone was worth it, even if the style didn't quite suit me. I haven't worn it since and decided it was time to transform the maxi skirt into a wearable summer dress! I used the fabric to create a cute halter top. The twisted neck, open back and flowy skirt come together to make a dress I love!
Dig into your closet and find a piece to redesign, recreate and give a new life!
