This week has been crazy madcakes busy! I haven’t had a chance to stop by any thrift stores (boo!), but I DID get a chance to do a quick and easy NO SEWING REQUIRED refashion (yay!)!
What we have here (as the caption above indicates) is a perfectly alright jersey knit sweater type thing. I wore it tons last year, and am now fairly over it. I was searching through my closet for a fun, funky, colorful skirt when I stumbled upon my ever-faithful sweater-thing.
“Why can’t you be a skirt?” I said to the sweater-thing.
“Wait a sec…Why CAN’T you be a skirt!?!” I exclaimed, thwacking my forehead with the palm of my hand.
And thus, a skirt was born.
First, I wrapped it around me and safety-pinned it at my waist.
Next, I added another safety-pin further down at my upper thigh to keep me from flashing too much leg.
Finally, I tied the arms of the sweater-thing around my waist in a double knot.
And Viola! My sweater-thing has been reincarnated as a rather fetching skirt (It was very good in its previous life). 🙂
I wore my new skirt all day at work and later for Mingle and Jingle on Main Street, a special holiday version of their First Thursday art series.
I also saw some sweet specs that are definitely now on my Christmas wish list, if you were wondering what I’d like this year. 🙂
Oh…and check these out!
I ended up taking these very cool acrylic peepers made by Kimberly Bookman (available at Tapp’s) home with me. Although now I want more… 🙂
