Suspender skirt

I liked the fabric and the straps of this dress. And i had just the thing to make out of it.

I removed the straps and the bottom part of the dress, which was too stiff.
Took the skirt/dress in at the sides (and sewed the zipper back on).
Lengthened the suspenders with the fabric from the hem, and sewed them and the buttons back on.

I am so in love with this suspender dress/skirt.
