So... My mom died and getting rid of her stuff is hard.. I decided to recon quite a few of her clothes so that they fit me. It's been a rotten few months.. and now I'm getting around to reconstructing her clothes and using up some of her fabric stash... this was the skirt before...

and after... I kept having disaster after disaster, and the original skirt was lined because  the outer fabric's super thin so I had to do my first lined skirt which lead to more disasters which meant.. the skirt kept getting shorter and tighter. On a funny note it made me laugh since mom always told me I wore overly long skirts. It was fated to be short and tight I guess.
So. not what I wanted it to be but it ended up being a mission to complete it, for personal reasons like I said. so that's my skirt. Thanks for reading.

Sorry about your loss.. I even can't imagine how hard it must be.

But the skirt you made is beautiful. :]

I lost my mom a few years ago, and I know how difficult it can be to go through her things. I kept some of my mom's clothes, too.

The skirt looks really nice. I'm sure your mom would approve. ^.^

The idea of altering her clothes to fit you is so beautiful. Everytime you wear this you'll be able to remember her. It turned out really well too. Just gorgeous.

Sorry to hear about your Mom, but you did a great job in reconstructing one of her skirts into a very cute skirt for you and I am sure she is looking down from heaven and is proud of you!

That is a great idea to do with your mother's clothes! And the skirt looks really good too!

I think that is an absolutely excellent way to keep your mother close to you. And it looks like you did a fantastic job on the skirt too.
