i recently had the opportunity to do a fashion show so i made some clothes out of old stuff . . .
a couple of the tops have been posted here before, so im posting these pics to show the skirts i made to go with them
since this is the only totally new outfit I moved it to the top:
the purple corduroy fabric i got from what may have been a maternity muumuu - i love that it is not only purple but printed! i used reclaimed jersey to make the top along with a sash from a pair of shorts and some fabric from one of the shirts i used to make another top in this post.
this top was handsewn (before i got a machine) from three different button down shirts.
the skirt i made from a large corduroy muumuu/jumper thing from a thrift store. it reminded me of what my pregnant kindergarten teacher used to wear
. there are also neckties decorating the pocket and the waistband - the waist looks kind of like an obi - ill try to post more pics later.here is a more detailed pic of this skirt. i used a necktie to make the tab closure waist. and another on the pocket. i thought the waist kind of looked like an obi.
and some views of the kickpleat in the back, which uses a cuff from one of the shirts used to make the coordinating top
this top was the first thing i posted on craftster - made out of an old tablecloth and hand sewn
the skirt i made from a favorite pair of jeans and the lace from a large pillow sham. unfortunately, there were no photos taken of the back for most of these - im kinda bummed because there were some cute back details. oh well.
this top is another repeat post and one of my favorites.
the skirt was a quick recon of a pretty outlandish disco style dress - this outfit is amazingly comfy
thanks for reading this long and c&c are always welcome!
