Maxi Dress refashioned into a Maxi Skirt

I like maxi dresses but I love maxi skirts. Most dresses have thin spaghetti straps which never cover my bra straps and I have to have some support. So my solution is cutting the top off and wearing it as a skirt! 



This requires no sewing just a sharp pair of scissors and a nice thick belt. I cut right under the chest area on the dress so I can fold down the top when I wear it as a skirt. Plus wearing the cut dress as a skirt also allows you to truly have floor length, which I love!!! I often find most maxi dresses are never long enough for me.

LOVE Wall Art Tutorial

I saw this beautiful framed wall art at frugallifeproject.com and became inspired to do my own version.

My version is of course a lot more economical. I saved a lot of money by using canvases and acrylic paint instead of paying for oversize prints and frames. I got all my supplies at Michaels because I of course had coupons! You could shop at Hobby Lobby as well for the supplies.
