Someone threw out some clothes and my mum showed it to me before she send it to the red cross. There was this plain and boring green skirt that fitted me really well. It was in my closset collecting dust until last week when I was sketching skirts and found out that there was hope for it!

Here is basicly what I did ( I know you people, you dont read, you look Wink

http://www.guu.dk/data/100/original/185/Untitled-1%20copy.jpg

1) I cut the skirt in the shape I wanted and sewed along the edges.
2) I made ruffles of old curtains.
3) The skirt had two layers, so it was easy to sew the ruffles onto the first layer (which I hadn't been cutting in)
4) finished result, ready to be prettied up with pearls.

Front.

Back (never mind the lovehandles >_<

I added this lace thingy that I have cut off a really ugly blouse about a month ago and pearls ofcourse Smiley

A guy at school told me it looked like I had put on a gigant penis, so I redid the front.

No English is not my first langue, please dont get aggresive when you read my misspellings and grammarmistakes.

♥ Thank you ♥

I like the redone last version too. Though I wouldn't have said it looks like a penis, I think the first version wasn't as great as the second. That being said, second = cool. =)
