This is my first time posting and my first time attempting reconstruction. (I think I did alright for a first try). I have been spending some time in the West of Ireland and eventhough I have a teaching job here, I still have more time on my hands than normal. This combined with a little creative motivation from a good friend led me to come up with this. This green corduroy is an old skirt from a friend that had bleach spilled on it. I used pieces from a floral pair of pants to make the skirt my size and to add details. The whole thing is hand stitched because I don't have a sewing machine here.
Here are some pictures...

I like the way it came out eventhough it's not quite my style. (It is something I can wear to work.)

I also made some fingerless gloves to go with it

That's it. Thanks for looking

thanks a bunch! Hand sewing is so time consuming. The whole thing (gloves and all) took me about six hours
