Hallo. Had a skirt I never wore 'cause it was a lot shorter than I fancy on myself. Hemmed up the bottom, removed the zipper and sewed up the space where it used to be. Then I added some simple straps. Ta-da!

Before:



After:



If you're a chubby bunny like me, this will make a big purse.

Tried to get an action shot but it just wasn't working today. Thanks for looking!

Craftmagic: Thank you!

Missnihkii: I wish I had a smaller skirt, it would have worked better, but I was trying to get rid it 'cause I just had it sitting on top of my dresser forever, waiting to be used. Next time, I'll pick a wee little skirt!

Ashton: It works really well with the ruffly skirt because (well, at least with mine) there was an underskirt that you can hem up instead of having to mess with the ruffles. Good luck!
