This was an idea I copied from violentjayne. Only mine is for a much more mature & plump figure. Very comfy to wear!!

From a pair of overalls that were too short in the legs, I cut the legs off right at the crotch saving the pockets. Then took a piece of fabric, sewed it into a tube. Gathered one end & attached to cut overall bottom.


Fun on the beach & the skirt already wet from romping in the ocean. & the bag was also home made by me.


Shaded, but to give a frontal view of creation.


Doesn't that torso look so thin?! ;> The grey shirt is also home made. & now that I'm 40, I get to wear ol' lady hats to protect my face from the sun. Fun!


eta a little sample of skirt fabric.

That looks so comfy. I love you color choice. I think as another mature & plump figure women I will have to keep an eye out for some overalls.
Thanks for sharing.

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
