I get so inspired from all the fun prints I find when I go thrifting. Sadly, the fun fabric isn’t doesn’t always belong to the most fun garments!
This is a pretty basic elastic-waisted skirt. Meh. Not much going on here. Today I was in a rare jeans mood, so a skirt wasn’t going to work!
I grabbed my scissors and snipped off that elastic waistband.
I wasn’t going to need the side pockets on this skirt, so I stitched them up and cut them off!
Then, I put the skirt upside-down on my dress form and pinned it at the shoulders.
I ran the pinned places through my machine, and used the discarded elastic waistband to cinch my waist.
Now I have a lovely new top! 🙂
I wore my new top to see Cinemovements, silent films scored by the SC Philharmonic! 🙂
