‘Member this hot numba?
It seems like only yesterday I turned this into a No Sew sweater.
A LOT of people asked me what I’d do with that awesome bottom scrap… I’m about to show you 🙂
I knew that I’d make this in to a skirt. To give it a little shape, I trimmed the side seams a bit so it wouldn’t just be a black tube of fabric.
I had to sew those new raw edges down, obviously. Then, I folded the waist under and made a casing for elastic.
After I fished the elastic through the casing, I tried on the skirt. It had to be a sure bet right?
I’m pretty sure I have the largest thighs on planet earth…
Looking at the pictures now, I guess it doesn’t look too bad… I was just really uncomfortable. So, I changed into a skirt I made over the summer.
This is exactly why I hate pencil skirts (or, really, just skirts in general…)… they just don’t flatter me. From now on, IF I wear a skirt, I’m an “A-line” gal.
I do think my outfit on the whole is quite adorable. It’s not a look I wear everyday… but as it just keeps getting cooler and cooler, I got out the fleece-lined tights and decided to go with something different (It’s nice to take a break from jeans and tshirts). They are so warm it’s not even funny. That awesome blue sweater is a freebie from my cousin. The tags were still on it! She donated it to me in exchange for some sewing repairs on her other clothing. I’m all about bartering but I’m pretty sure I got the better end of the deal 🙂
So, maybe my refashion wasn’t a Fail…. It was just a fail on me. I’m not the best seamstress… I think it’s good to be honest about it. Hence the title of my blog! 🙂
Happy Refashioning, everyone. Remember to keep it real 😉
