dress remake- thanks to my sister

My sister always gives me the greatest hand me downs (would it be hand me ups... she's my little sister?). It might have been the crazy amount of cake that we ate, but this dress was too tight on both of us. It's cute, but the stripes through the tummy area weren't very friendly or flattering. I solved that with a pair of scissors. I chopped the shirt part off and inserted a thick elastic band through the already existing waist band area. It was super easy and I now have a cute jersey knit skirt.

Great solution! I have a dress my mom handed down to me that the elastic is shot and I can't figure out what to do with it. I love the fabric - I think I will finally do something with it! Thanks!
