I made this whole outfit in the last week, and all of the fabrics were remnants! Even the cardigan was thrifted, bringing the total price of this outfit to $9. I didnt intentionally wear all my new clothes together, but that just shows how satisfied I am with the recent sewing.


For the skirt, I used the wrong side of a denim remnant (about 1/2 yd, $.50) with a tiny bit of stretch. The waistband was pieced together from denim scraps. The silver linen waistband was a long, narrow strip left over from a friends painting. And the back pockets are from a shirt I made for my husband. The zipper and button were also from my stash.

The tank top also came from the remnant bin (1/2 yd, $.50!), and is copied from a tank that my mom sent a few years ago. Its a slinky cotton jersey, and seems to go with everything I own. The striped straps are scraps from leggings. I also made a pair of panties using the leftover fabric and some elastic from my sewing cabinet.


I made the leggings using two remnants of medium-weight lycra ($1). Theyre stretchy, neutral, and have been keeping me warmer than I expected. Ive been very discriminating against synthetics, but now Im trying to expand my mind.

Your clothes are always so fun and colourful.  I really love the main fabric of the top.  And the back pockets on the skirt are great too.

Thanks everyone! I'm really happy with how everything turned out, and my desire to keep wearing each piece encourages me to do laundry more often.  Wink
