Hello Readers. Today's project came from this blue suede outfit. Well, it wants to be suede, but it's not. It's just pretending. My before picture is not good at all. I apologize for that. I found this two piece outfit at a clothes swap. I love the rich blue. Between the skirt and top, there is A LOT of blue suede here. Today I am just going to break up this outfit and fix up the skirt.
Here is a better picture of the skirt. It had an elastic waist and about 6 inches of satin trim at the bottom. There was a slit on the side. I cut the waistband off.
I flipped the skirt upside down. attached a zipper in the slit. The bottom hem will now be the waistband.
It took some re-sizing to get the satin band to fit my waist and hips. This skirt has no stretch so I had to measure and re-check.
I gave it a new hem. It was very easy to work with this fabric.
And here we are. I like the skirt by itself. I don't plan to wear it with the matching shirt.
As always, I appreciate you taking the time to read this. And I enjoy your comments too.
Now, go make something fabulous for yourself.
