Shapeless top to Summer Skirt



I acquired this top when my sister was having a clear out ages ago.


I knew it would be easy to make it into a skirt but didn't see the point when we never normally get much summery weather and I really didn't need another hardly worn summer skirt!

This summer has been the exception so far though, glorious sunshine for 3 weeks now and it is not looking to end soon so the top has been brought out of its 2 years hibermation in a suitcase under the bed ready to be made in to a skirt.

I cut off the straps, re stitched the band at the top that was now the waist band, then took in the waist a little and I had a fab new skirt with ready made button closure!


One of my favourite summer skirts now. Long may the sunny weather continue!

  7. That's so funny it looks more like a skirt than a top, even before the refashion! It's worked really well.
