a dress... to a top

I mentioned in my previous post how I was sick all weekend and I haven't really gotten better, but even though I have had a cold I have still been getting ready everyday as if I were going out in public. So this is me on a Monday, sick and trying to look half decent.
The good thing about staying home sick on Monday was that I had the opportunity to finish my 2nd Pinterest Challenge. (my 1st was a DIY Doily Dreamcatcher that you can see here). For this challenge I wanted to change the back of one of my tops to look like this, but when it came down to it, I didn't have a shirt that I was willing to refashion.  So I remembered I had this dress that I haven't worn in like 2 years and decided it would be perfect because I could use the bottom of the dress as the ties.
I'm pretty happy with the end result and really want to try it again with more of a flowy fabric.
