The first is a general black velvet shirt I do not wear anymore. It hides in my closet I found it today.
The next is what it looks like now.
This all came about because I have a friend that goes around wearing rags. Her clothes are falling apart and she doesn't buy new ones. People ask behind her back if she is homeless, it breaks my heart. She is very frugal and very large. I am not a small woman either but skirts for her are insanely expensive and I get why she doesn't wanna buy them. She does not wear pants at all. So she wants to try and learn to make her clothes but is afraid. So I told her I'd make this skirt this weekend and then I'd teach her. Well I made it purposely large hoping she'll try it on, it will help to know her measurements and all that. Of course I had left over fabric and needed a cosmetic bag so that was next...then the shirt. Which I cut the front out of and added a panel of fabric. I added some neat sleeves too. I really like how it turned out.
Here is the bag.
Opps first post, can't post the actual pics.
