|Vogue 9862 Circa 1998|
I just couldn't find the right fabric that I wanted to use from my stash, and since I'm on a self imposed ban from buying sewing and crafting supplies I had to get creative.
I ended up pulling out this old cotton wrap skirt that I no longer wear.
Every once in awhile I go through a phase where I'm completely drawn to cutesy floral prints~
I was able to piece together enough fabric to make View C!
I decided to leave the elastic off of the bottom of the sleeves but still added lace to the bottom hem.
Tah dah....my skirt has been recycled into a new peasant top!
This will be great for summer and for travelling!
I have a hard time letting go of clothes that still fit, especially if I've made them, even if they are slightly out of fashion. Sometimes this bad habit comes in handy though~
How about you? Do you recycle old clothes into something new or hand them down? Leave a comment below~
Loved the blouse. I have made several items from sheets. They are a great way to get yardage for sewing.
Nicely done! Way to recycle your previous hard work. =)
