My friend Meghan gave me a cute green and navy paisley print sundress from Express.

Alas, the boobage did not work at all! I ripped out the zipper with a seam ripper. Using another similar skirt as a guide, I cut a new waistline. I sewed up the part where the zipper was ripped. Then I used 1/2inch elastic and sewed it directly to the new waistband. I then folded the leftover parts and sewed it again, enclosing the elastic. I then fixed a few spots where the lace had torn off. Tada! New skirt! I already had a shirt for it. I actually have another fancier shirt that will look more professional. Sweeeeeet!
