Changing things up a bit today with a sewing project. I have jumped on the refashioning band wagon in a big way. I find it is so rewarding to take a garment that is never worn and changed into something really cool and fun to wear. The project today is refashioned from a pair of denim shorts. The shorts were never a favorite and did not fit well.
This is a picture of the shorts. I have already taken them apart at the crotch seam.
Here is my new warp denim skirt. I added a second denim to the front and bottom edge. I sewed an exposed separating zipper onto both edges of the front. This how I get in and out of the skirt. I added some large snaps on the opposite edge of the front to keep the skirt closed and in place.
This is a view of the back. I did have to add a small godet in back to get everything to lay flat.
This was such a fun project! I enjoyed the process of working through the refashion step by step. I liked the end results so much, I made a second skirt in white denim. I will share the photos of that project later.
Hope you enjoyed this interlude of sewing. Next post will be about card making, but I will continue to show you my sewing projects too.
Hope you are having a great day!!
