Refashion: Crochet Pencil Skirt

I have been waiting for almost two years to do this refashion. I stumbled on this beautiful crochet tube dress and bought it without a second thought. It was only $10 and I happened to be shopping in  Houston (a rarity when I lived in South Texas) and I just couldn't help myself. Did I need a mini tube dress? No. Could I see it's potential as a pencil skirt? Yes, I sure could.

Here's a breakdown:

1. buy a tube dress with stretch (mine is a knit lined crochet)
2. cut off the bodice.
3. turn inside out & sew a straight line.
4. using this tutorial, attach elastic to the waist band (I buy mine here).

I just love the texture and lightness. I think I know what I am wearing on Easter.
