Oh, how I love re-fashioning clothes! I love taking something that is ridiculously hideous, and making it wearable and (dare I say) fashionable.
Maybe it's the Spring in the air and the fact that I'm longing for a new wardrobe, but I've been plugging away at the ol' sewing machine again and refashioning another ridiculous item of clothing.
This time, meet my $3 skirt from (where else?) GW (that's the good will for all you folks who don't shop there. Crazy people).
I affectionately referred to her as "Big Blue" before she was transformed. In her old state, she would have been a perfect candidate for an Amish housewife. But not for me.
She had some redeeming qualities, like the inky navy blue color, simple lines, and cute buttons.
After a little hemming and taking in, here she is now:
I think it's going to be a wardrobe staple from here on out!
I promise I'm not going to become a full-on fashion blogger, but I do love talking about it from time to time. You guys don't mind if I do some of these once in a while, right??? =)
