Hey guys (but probably mostly gals)! Remember this frumpy sweater dress?
Come on! This wasn’t that long ago!
Some may remember how I turned the top of this sweater dress into a sweater with modern ribbon details.
I wasn’t lying when I said I had plans for that bottom leftover scrap!
Let’s turn the bottom of this sweater dress into a skirt!
This is a pretty simple one, folks. This scrap obviously wants to be a cute skirt. As I don’t have many skirts, this is what I want for it too.
I started pinning that top edge down, creating a casing.
Then, I stitched it down, making sure to leave enough space to thread some elastic through.
I grabbed a scrap of elastic salvaged from an old fitted bed sheet (every scrap is sacred!) and threaded it through.
Then, I stitched it together.
And that’s all it took to turn that sweater dress into a totally no-waste refashion!
I paired my new skirt with my favorite tee (ethically made) and a refashed cardi.
I’ve been a bit down lately, so I thought channeling Julia Child was worth a go!
I’ve been making a lot of recipes from her masterpiece, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, realizing I’m not hungry, and then freezing my creations or giving them away.
At least I’m keeping busy?
