Skirt to stuff.

Another hobby of mine is thrifting. I love thrift stores and thrive on sorting through junk to score something cool for next to nothing.

So here is a skirt that I picked up recently. I really loved the skirt itself, but knew that I no matter how many alterations I did to it, that 20 inch waist was set in stone and there was no other alternative than to hack it up and make other pretties with it.

Before:

Materials I used in addition to the yellow print:

twill
wool felt
embroidery thread
interfacing
zippy zippers

I haven’t figured out what I’m going to do with that lace piece yet, it came off in one long strand and just screams at me to do something creative with it. But I’m at a loss so far. We shall see.
