Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Orange tribal top refashion

I thought this top was fun and I loved the pattern.. But it just didn't work on.....

After some thinking, I realized the bottom of the top would work as a skirt.  So I cut the shirt right below the armholes. I wanted to leave excess in order to work some sort of waistband.
I attempted to add a lining but then changed my mind. It did not need it.

Next I serged the edge of the top to avoid fraying.

Then I decided on something smart.... I left the existing elastic in and sewing the top part of the skirt to the underneath of the skirt. Essentially making a casing..

Basically I had to stretch while I sewed... but I got a picture!

Done! Now to have some fun styling it!

It works much better as a skirt :-) I must remember this idea since I can't seem to find skirts anywhere are the moment.
