I made two summer skirts while watching about 8978972 hours of the secret life saved on my tv.


the first was made out of a thrifted dress that I have reconed about 4 times.

so now its this.....


bad ass jump rope for heart shirt hun? hah

I basically just cut up the old dress and made a big cylinder then gathered the top and sewed on the elastic, in the process sewing into my finger nail Sad

then I made this out of a thrifted muumuu. I did the same as the first but since the fabric had no stretch I added a top band and an exposed zipper in the back


(zipper)


I had a nightmare with the fabric unraveling around the zipper so i added muslin bias tape then sewed the zipper over it to reinforce it.

sorry no before pictures

C&C appreciated
