Another thrift store skirt, strangely just my size (!) but veeeeery long (and I am not very tall…). So, just a simple idea with the leftover fabric: I doubled it and covered two round button brooch with the solid blue fabric, getting a sort of high-waisted pencil skirt and with a choice between solid blue band (inner fabric) or shadowy blue (outer fabric, apparently the same quality). And I can wear it also as a (short) scarf…
My daughter is modeling for me (you know, lately my belly seems to swell with hot weather) so I made the (not so good) pics.
