641  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Plaid Mini-skirt for a buck! Woo hoo! on: January 23, 2006 01:20:36 PM
I got this UGLY UGLY UGLY long plaid skirt with pleats in all the wrong places (I WISH I had pictures!) from a vintage clothing store that was going out of business. Everything in the store was a buck! So I grabbed the skirt and forgot I even had it for a year! Well, I finally came across it the other day and revamped it into a mini skirt! Yay!
Trying to take out the original pleats without ripping the fabric took over an hour.I took some spare black stretchy fabric for the waist band part and added a small panel of the plaid fabric to it also. Then I pleated it! I didn't think to see how the pleats would look ON ME before sewing them, so the placement is kind of odd, but I like it!! I am obsessed with pleats, so I figure I can't go wrong! Smiley There is no waist fastener, I just sewed the waist band small enough at the top so the skirt won't fall down, ha ha!


Close up: (NOTE: My tank top does not actually clash with the other reds, it's just the flash on the camera! Lol)

Sexy shot (hahahaha):

Pretty tights!:

full body (PLEASE excuse the excessive fatness! Thank you):



What do you guys think??? Also, I am thinking of somehow adding a pocket to the waist band part, but I don't know how! Would that look alright?

Thanks for taking a look! Smiley

Those colors are so striking and powerful together, so beautiful!! I love the hearts and the parts where it is weaved (or at least looks weaved). Amazing, incredible, perfection, flirtatious, .....I could go on and on, lol. Smiley

That top is SO PRETTY! I love the color and the cut of the neckline part. I see that done a lot on here, how did you do it? I would love to try it out myself! And to top it off, you look so pretty! Wink

Oh yes, quite well! It's a "beginner" machine I suppose, but it's very powerful and efficient and it's hard to screw up on. I have another Brother machine that was around the $150 mark and I'd say this one is better, although it does have fewer stitches..oh well. I think it's great.  Cheesy

I got it from Overstock.com during their holiday sale! Shipping was free! They still have it on for $65 but you have to pay shipping now.

Thanks, sweeties, for the compliments:)

Yes, it was totally winged. I just made a waist band of my preffered length and hemmed it, then pinned down the ruffles to the bottom edge and sewed (taking out each pin before the needle hits it of course). It's easy! Oh, and no, it's not short at all. I have dwarfishly short legs is all. lol. It only comes up maybe 1.5 inches above the knee.

I love this machine, I want to have a love affair with it but I don't think my fiance would approve! Smiley

Hello everyone! This is my first post of something I have made and I am so excited to share it with you talented, crafty people! Smiley

I bought this fabric at Walmart for $2-something a yard, and I love it! I was too excited to make this so I made the sloppy mistake of leaving a lot of raw edges on the inside of the skirt (well, my novice sewing skills are also to blame, lol), meaning it is all shredded up on the inside. It has a drawstring. Also, it's my first attempt at doing ruffles, which turned out to be fun! I had to make them smaller and more sparse due to lack of fabric. Oh well, I like it!

My beautiful, lovely new sewing machine (on sale for only 65 freakin' dollars, I must add!)


Tell me what you think!!
