268 days to go: Calling crafty bloggers
Continuing my theme to make do and mend I discovered two skirts I had bought from a charity shop in the back of my wardrobe.
I know why I had bought them - I liked the colour and they were both pure new wool.
However, shortening them would be a tricky job for my basic skills so I decided to take them to the tailors and am very pleased with the result.
Today I wore the pleated plaid one to take my two youngest to see High School Musical 3 ( which was great!)
My how they've grown.
But back to my skirt.
I had asked the seamstress to give me the remnants as I was sure I could use them.
But now I'm stumped.
Any ideas anyone.
The blue one is 6 inches by 40 inches.
The plaid one 9 inches by 75 inches.
My whole outfit consists of
Charity Shop skirt, shortened.
Black Polo Neck. New Look
Blue Whistles Boots
Pendant from magazine
Bracelet - Murano glass bought from Venice in 2006.
