This dress was given to me, the zip was broken and the belt had been lost. The fabric and style is very 70s and only the most committed 70s fashion follower would have worn it as a dress. However, I liked the fluidity of the skirt, the way it dropped and flowed and the unusual pleated sleeves. So, working with those two aspects I decided to upcycle it into a skirt and jacket. I separated the bodice from the skirt, added a black waistband and turned the bodice around to make the jacket. It is now a wearable outfit with 70s inspiration.
