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. The only other seam was to adjust the height of the back of the neckline, other than that, if I am ever in need of a frumpy skirt, I just need a seam ripper and an iron…
I can really see this work with flowy a-line skirts in lovely supply fabrics as well!
