First, turn your dress inside out.

Now put your dress on upside-down, so the top of the dress is at the bottom, and the hem is at the top. 

You’ll need to adjust where the top of the dress goes down to, depending on the length of your dress, and the length you want your skirt to be.

Just play around with it until you’ve got it just right.
