Skirt Dress

Bought this skirt about 4 years ago .This has a very Goan gypsy feeling which means unless i take a trip to Goa i wont be able to wear it. So decided to give the skirt a little makeover! A little nip here and a little tuck there transformed the skirt to  a tube dress which is so great for summers :))







Skirt/Dress - Akriti
Hakoba jacket:Thrifted
Flats:Chitra Kala Parishath
Anklets:Vintage Silver
Belt:Vintage

  1. kool !
    I wonder how did you manage to keep it intact at breast :P
    Even I tried the same thing wit one of my skirt .. with a stretchable belt but it seemed to fall down weneva I moved , Good that I tried it at home :D
    So I gave up the idea of wearing a skirt as dress altogether

  2. you just have to get the measurements rights , i was running around with the dress all day and it was pretty comfortable
    P.S i removed the elastic provided at the waist .That kind of did the trick:)

  3. I have this pretty blue bandhini ghagroo, which I don't wear either, and I was thinking of doing the exact same thing!
    You should live here man, I'd totally bribe you to do it for me.
    I can't stitch to save my ass.

    P.S. Love the look. Hsve the irresistible urge to steal your belt and run :D

  4. Love your DIY tricks, ah the clothes I buy from Goa sit in my closet listlessly waiting to head back to Goa! I have a few skirts too long to be worn without always lifting it off the floor, might try and something like this ala you :) LOve your pendant as well :)
