The first is a 2-tier gathered skirt made out of 3 black T-shirts. Whenever I hear that someone is cleaning out their closet, I'm there asking, "can I please go through your clothes before you throw them out? Please?!" Which is followed by a confused look and a "uh, ok." So, three black t-shirts that were most likely never worn (due to ugly graphics, etc.) were saved from the landfill and transformed into this beautiful skirt:
The waistband is made from new jersey knit. The bow is made from seam tape that was a scrap from my late grandmother's stash- which would have never been used as seam tape.
The bottom tier has sheer panels that are also from previously used fabric. The sheer panels gives the skirt a nice "peek-a-boo" effect, while still being completely modest.
The second skirt I made, a pixie skirt, started out as a scarf. It is a knit jersey. Some girl left it in my step-brothers' room, but he doesn't know which girl it was. "I'll take that!"
I added some lace going down the side, and some butt ruffles! What could make a pixie skirt better, except butt ruffles?
What do you think?
