I had to run some errands yesterday, so I took the opportunity to quickly pop in to Vinnies to see what was on offer.... where I spotted this gem.
I know that it's a Nana skirt that's totally and utterly unfashionable in its current state, but there were pangs of nostalgia when I saw the label, and there's only one word for the 100% Australian Lightweight Wool Fabric - DIVINE.
Sadly I think we all know what happened to Fletcher Jones...
But, back to the skirt, and the ingenuity of the design.
It's fully reversible, so you can have a grey skirt one day....
...and a red one the next (and you should probably iron it before wearing).
I've saved my favourite part for last. Underneath each pleat, the fabric has been woven to reveal the other colour.
Now I just need to work out whether I can re-fashion it into something that's wearable and maybe even fashionable?
