Ruined Dress to Cute Skirt Transformation!

Ciao lovelies!
So recently the washer machine ruined one of my dresses (the seams busted open). Not to be discouraged, I simply turned it into a skirt!
So this dress: (just the green velvet part):
got ruined in the wash :( the top part seams busted open and frayed.
So I cut off the top part... and hemmed the top of the fabric into a canal.
 Then, i attached a safety pin to the end of some elastic...
 fed the elastic through the skirt and stitched it together...
 then sewed up the open space and the skirt was done!
Of course, I had to try out some outfits:

Love always,
Lady Luna
