In the last month I have made a few summer skirts. I have made them from recycling dresses or skirts from charity shops.
This skirt was a good well made designer skirt but the style was quite outdated and didn't suit my body shape. So I cut the waist off and laid it out to make a simple A-line skirt. There was plenty of fabric so the pattern could be matched easily on the side.
Another skirt I made last week. I “fell in love” with this digital floral print. The dress was too small but it was good quality fabric and going cheap in a opportunity shop! So I converted it into a A- line skirt. I’m very happy with it.
