Refashion: skirt to loose-fitting halter-peplum top

After completing the jeans to overalls refashion, Ella had a second challenge for me. She pulled out this skirt!

Let's refashion this skirt!

I took a good look at it and realized the bottom flare was mainly in the front, the zipper’s on the side, and there is a lining.  It looked like it might make a good top so I asked Ella to pull it on. It looked decent! I just had to remove a few inches off the top (original waistband) and use that to create straps.

Here’s the final product!
