I got this dress in a second hand because I liked the pattern (I guess that's called mille fleure?) It even fitted me well, but I looked like my granny in her twenties:) The dress was really old-fashioned, so I turned it into a skirt.
I guess it very well known way to refashion old jeans, but I tried it first time. I cut my jeans (no before pidture) about 2 cm under the zipper and attached the bottom part of the dress to it. I didn't change anything, so I had to do only one single seam.
