A 15 Minute Re-fashion
I have a massive range of clothes in my wardrobe. My weight tends to vary over three different clothing sizes depending on what's happening in my life (skirt is gathered and pinned at the back to fit Frances.... I am nowhere near this size).
I try to clean it out and donate things to the oppy every so often, but there are some pieces that I just have to hold on to.
Does anyone actually remember when ankle length denim skirts were fashionable?
I bought this skirt on a holiday in Queensland somewhere around 1999 or 2000. I used to wear it with a pair of black high heel lace up boots that I bought at the Queen Vic Market...... ahhhh the memories.
It's been sitting in a drawer gathering dust for years, and has even survived the massive wardrobe cull of two house moves, so I thought it deserved a new life.
Bring on the rotary cutter, overlocker, sewing machine, and a spare 15 minutes..... and this is what you get.
All of a sudden, I now have a wearable denim a-line skirt. Perfect!
