Corona Casual

Hello Readers. How are you? Thanks to the Corona/Covid virus I feel like I really need to ask people how they are now. And your family? They are all well? Life in my house is pretty low key right now. That means lots of lounge wear and basically pajamas. That is what I made for this post, casual and lounge wear.
 2 refashions for the price of 1!

 I found this great cotton skirt at a clothes swap long before we all stopped going out. It is a fake wrap skirt and it is clearly too long. And the sweater I have had for ages. It is also too long. It doesn't fit around my hips well and I don't like that. But it is cashmere, and I love cashmere!

The skirt was an easy fix. I made it much shorter. BOOM! I'm done.

 I gave my new skirt a new hem and I actually used the iron. I mean, why not? I have all the time in the world now.

What about the bottom of that skirt? I had a plan for that too. I used a well-loved pattern that my dog rolled on and tried to make a bed out of. It's OK, it still works.

I cut the pieces out and sewed them together. 

 The sweater was and easy fix too. I moved the waistband up about 3 inches so the sweater was shorter. It didn't fit around my hips well so I thought making it shorter would make that fit problem go away!

It all worked out well. My shorts have an elastic waistband so I am comfortable. I can sleep in them. I can walk the dog in them. I can go in the yard with my son in them. The sweater is dressy enough for a Zoom call. It fits so much better now. I didn't change anything but the length.
 Morning tea is a must for me!

 Thanks for reading along, now go make something fun for yourself. 
And stay well!
