i cant remember if i posted this one or not. if i have, i am sorry. but i have finished it now. Smiley well except for the hem and ironing.

it was originally a pair of ludicrous sixties polyester grandma pants, but in this amazing shade of electric blue (the pic isnt the best) so i did a little messing around and used the knees down and made it into a skirt, and saved the top for a pair of shorts, which i have packed in a box somewhere. anyway, the bobbin was in there wrong so the seam at the waist is all loose and wobbly but i really like how it looks! i am going over it again with more black thread so it looks like i did it on purpose.
then one night i put the applique on. then today i used some of these lovely vintage curtain pleats and gave it a bit of a slip and now i am in love. too bad it is a size 26 hahahaha. :\


its nothing much, but i am still learning Smiley
i want more polyester pants! lol.

I LOVE this! And, of course, i love polyester. This is a great idea for those "so ugly-they're cute" skirts I see all the time at the thrift store.
