Narelle's Ballentynes Blitz

If you find a sundress like this…


You could buy a shirt and wear it on top like this…


Maybe even add an EziBuy jacket like this…


But if you like really long skirts, here’s what else you can do with a low-cut, empire-line sundress. I bought the sundress two sizes too wide. I’m going to remove the bodice, drop the remainder to my waist, fit it with a button fastening on each side and maybe a dart or two, and I’ll have a skirt to go with the shirt and jacket. If you can wear elasticized waists, the transition from dress to skirt would be even easier.

If you find a shirt like this (sale price NZ$20!)…


...with buttons set low on the placket but without the option of adding extra buttons (most stores these days provide extra buttons on the tag)...


You can wear it like this…


...with a lace-bordered camisole from JayJays.
