A Silken Skirt Dress

A Denim Skirt (Why didn’t I have one of these already???)
My DIY Save the Dates

It’s been a while since my last post, eh?  Not to worry.  I’m not going anywhere.  I’m just busy mulling ideas over for what shall surely be an amazing Year 2 of my blog (starts next month!).  I’m getting quite excited about it!  :)

Today’s outfit began as a discarded silk skirt.

Caffeine makes the magic happen!

 A charity shop was about to toss it out because of this:


This was an easy fix.  I turned the skirt inside-out and re-sewed the torn seam.

A quick fix!

If this skirt hadn’t needed mending, this would’ve been a no-sew refashion. :)  I decided to wear it as a dress, cinching it at the waist with a sash from another dress.  :)

A simple transformation!

Before you find fault with me for doing such a quickie refashion, please understand that I had other things to make for the evening as well.  :)

Mmmmmmm! Turkey Chili! :)

MMMMmmmmmm! Blueberry Mojitos!

A Saucy Slit!

After a bit of mojito pre-gaming, I was ready to head out for the evening!  Have you ever noticed how when you’re in pictures wearing a strapless dress, you look as if you’re naked? :)  I mean, look at this!

Looking topless…

Happy and nekkid-looking

    Hey, the quickie transformations still count, IMO. I’m currently wearing a maxi-dress that the only thing I did to it was add some straps. (One of those hippie-looking ones with the super-gathered elasticy tops– the straps were basically to prevent wardrobe malfunctions!) And I think it makes the idea of refashioning less intimidating, if people see that all that needs to be done sometimes to make something frumpy into something cute is, say, wear it as a dress instead of a skirt. Or chop the hem off. Or other really simple fixes.

      I don’t trust those elastic-y tops either! Thanks for making me feel like a bit less of a slacker. :)

    Well, not only did you repair it, you also wore what was originally a skirt as a dress, so yes I think this definitely counts as a refashion! Craving a blueberry mojito, it looks yummy!
