Ok so i finally decided i could NOT fit into my size 0 mini skirt. I got it for $2 at the thrift store and tried it on over my jeans. a bit snug but i figured it would fit. it did. if i hadn't eaten for 5 days (which i used to do cause i was too lazy to cook.)
it was very very short and i had to wear leggings or tights underneath.
I got sick of that. I took scraps of denim that i had left over from an other project. and i sewed a square of it to the edge of the skirt.

then i noticed the bottom sagged to much. so i just stitched the middle of the panel. accidentally making it perfect.



Notice sagginess


and no more sag



thanks for looking...!!!!

What a great idea. I want to go try on old skirts now. Probably the first time of ever I hope one doesn't fit  Smiley

Very cool! I wish I had kept all the tiny mini skirts my roomate gave me when she cleaned out her clothes...but the ones that fit were soooo short!  I wish I was as creative as you!  I would have had some damn cute little purses!  Never throw anything away...(or donate as the case may be)...I love the purse Smiley

That is so cute!!  The back pockets designs, the fraying-- it's wonderful!!  What kind of strap did you use (just curious)?  Smiley
