Garage Sale Skirt Revamped

On Friday I went around to some garage sales with my nephew.
We found a few things here and there.
But my favorite stop was when I found tons of fabric, and a dress for 10 cents each.
Well, the fabric was 10 cents each. 
The dress I bought for 2 dollars, more than I wanted to spend, but I still feel it was a good deal.
My whole goal with the dress was to make something out of the fabric, because naturally I knew it wouldn't fit me. I liked the colors and the pretty birds along the bottom.

I picked a random spot and cut it off.
And I made a skirt for Cameron.


I gathered it at the top, and the side is closed together with a button.






And I was trying to get a picture of the button, but it turned out blurry sorry.


Happy Sewing, and thanks for stopping by "Through Betsy's Looking Glass".
