Thrifty Thursday - "Olive" to refashion! Haha, well I really do love to refashion! And it just so happens that today's refashion is olive green - one of my favorites of the season! I found this gem at the Goodwill outlet.
Yes, it was a tad big and frumpy, but it had potential!
I was lucky, because where the bottom part of the skirt was attached was the perfect length for me! So, I just detached it with a seam ripper!
Then I stuck it on my dressform and pinned where I needed to take it in.
At that point, the skirt wasn't too bad on its own. I'll probably wear it like this sometime. (After I sew on a new button!)
However, I wanted to do something a little more fun! I used the bottom part that I cut off and made it into a belt/sash to tie into a bow. I thought it was cute!
I'm excited because I feel like this will be a great neutral, versatile piece for the Fall/Winter!
What other ways would you wear this skirt? I'd love ideas!
