Came across this idea on a blog which for the life of my I can’t retrace.
Bought this frumpy skirt for £2 in a charity shop, and made it into a top. It’s simply worn upside down, with two shoulder seams creating a cowl neck at the front.

I can really see this work with flowy a-line skirts in lovely supply fabrics as well!
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
