I went through my closet and sorted out some of my close. The only ones I could part with did have holes in them or stains that did not come out, so I don’t think donating is the right thing for them. I don’t want to make cleaning rags either, since they are nice clothes.. so Refashion was it!
First up were some unsightly Gaucho pants! WHO EVER CAME UP WITH THAT? They look horrible on most people!!! I got them from someone a long time ago and kept them around, because I thought I could maybe sleep in them, but I didn’t… I guess my aversion for them goes DEEEEEEEEEP.
Today was the day to figure out how to make them wearable! I was determined to make them into a skirt! Skirts are cute!
I took the leg seams out, then laid them out flat to make an A-line. Now I had to add some fabric to cover the triangle that was created by me adjusting the legs into the A-line. I had this really cool Old Navy T-shirt. I loved it! It had this goddess figure on it! I also have had it so long, there were worn spots on the bottom seam. So I took it apart and Alabama Stitch style sewed it into the triangular shaped “hole” in my “skirt”.
Presto! LOVE at first sight! It still needs to be ironed! But my iron fell and it broke the tip clear off (halfway down) so I can’t use it right now. So please imagine it ironed! : D I will love you for it!
The back has the triangle too, and I am fully aware that it will be an arrow pointing at my rear, so I plan on wearing it sideways (So the triangles are on my sieds, instead of in the front and back… )
I have one more of these and lots more T-shirts that I sorted out, so I can have one more cute skirt.
