When I found this big skirt in a bag of refashionables gifted to me from Revente’s Last Call, I got really excited!
The print is lovely, but I’m thinking today needed to be a jeans day!
Not to worry…I knew just what I’d need to do to turn this baggy skirt into an exotic Batwing Cover up/Cape Thing. 🙂
First, I turned my skirt inside-out and pinned a line right under the elastic waistband.
Then, I sewed it right up!
I turned the skirt right side out, and put it on my dress form.
I played with it a bit…figuring out exactly where I wanted the sleeves to be, and how long I wanted them to be as well.
Once I had the sleeves figured out and pinned, I ran them through my machine.
Now my DIY Batwing Cover up/Cape Thing is ready to step out into the world!
I wore my Cover up/Cape Thing to Cafe Strudel, where I enjoyed a big tasty plate of hash browns!
