i bought this apron for $3.00 at this great thrift store near my house...

and i made it into a skirt. (im obviously the one in the skirt)

fabric close up (you can get the full idea here as far as color goes)...

the skirt is a wrap skirt, so this is what it looks like when you take it off.

this is the first thing i have sewn without a pattern that actually fits.  i hate using patterns. 

also there are some less good quality pictures in the next post, thanks wookiedough.

The skirt is awesome, but the picture is hard to see, so I contrasted it for you.  This way more people can appreciate the awesomeness.

I like the creative use of something you found at a thrift store! Fun and cute--and with Domunique's influence (she is so stylish!), you can't go wrong!

I love sewing without a pattern as well...

It's not easy taking over the world...

That's a really original skirt. I've been thinking about making an apron like that into a hippie-style apron dress. Cool idea to make a skirt.

Glue, buttons, and a wall. Hmmm...

This is so interesting to me, but skirts and things tend to be reconned into aprons!  You took one and reversed that.  Great job!
