Cranberry Dress into Sassy Pencil Skirt

I have many pieces in my closet that are 4+ years old because I couldn't think of a good reason to get rid of them. My style and preference changes so much that when I get rid of all my dresses, I want them back. Same goes for my ugly plaid button-ups.

So this dress: obviously I couldn't let it go last Thanksgiving even though I was repairing the waistband right before leaving for my sister-in-law's house. Obviously.

I bought this in 2006 or 2007 for a work party and have worn it for holidays since.

I love the cranberry and the knit fabric is so stretchy and comfy. So I made a pencil skirt using C&C's tutorial.

So sassy, right? My husband calls it a "stretch pants skirt" for the reason you are about to see...

Oh hai, butt! It seems as though this skirt has defied genetics and given me a butt. However small, it is there and it is SHOUTING at you. So take a good look. Because I might not be wearing this skirt that often. I might have to get used to being so sassy...

Oh yeah..and enjoy that stupid mismatched hem. What an amateur. I think the side seams bunch because the fabric should probably be used for underwear instead of a shapely skirt.
