Feels like I am just putting out DIY’s with no real tutorials these days, I hope you like them anyway! This week I mostly spent working. I had to get up at 5.30 (not that early for my job really) get on my bike and ride a total of about 18 kilometres (over 10 miles) between jobs during the day. To make things worse some dude threw trash at me while I was changing bags in a trash can one day, apparently I am invisible while working! I guess I can call myself The Human Trash Can from now on. Yeah, that is totally going to be my super hero name.
I made the chiffon skirt, one of those where you are supposed to wear another shorter skirt underneath, last year. I wore a mini dress under it but never felt comfortable walking around in it. I wanted something more modest – something that wouldn’t make me involuntarily flash people at every little gust of wind.
I decided to cut off and use the lower part of an old jersey dress to make the skirt. I added a wider belt to the chiffon skirt and used the upholstery fabric from this post.
This is how the chiffon skirt looked before the remake.
And it looked like this after I added the new fabric.
The belt closes with three buttons.
I am very excited about next week’s project! I think you will like it too… See you soon! :D
