I don't wear skirts usually, especially longer ones that go beyond the knee. I had this gathered cotton skirt that I thought would make a better dress. Below, I came up with a way to refashion a skirt into a trapeze style dress. You can even do this with a strapless dress to add extra coverage.
I've always been a watch person. It's a habit of mine to check my wrist for time even if I'm not wearing one. I'm also someone who loves hand-crafted, eco-friendly brands. I was introduced to Jord Wood Watches and immediately wanted one. Not only are they hand-crafted but they're made using sustainable sourced wood. Some of the wood they use comes from used furniture, guitar parts, and bamboo…just like Trash to Couture but for watches.

Chain, scarf, clasp, pliers, sewing machine/needle and thread
Pin over one corner of the scarf and sew where the pin is so you can string the chain necklace through.
Cut chain to fit around your neck and use a clasp with pliers to secure it. Unless you have a chain necklace you can use.
This part is optional, fold the bottom under and use a decorative stitch to secure it. I did a couple but you can do just one. You don't have to do this part because when you tie the side corners in the back it naturally folds up front.
