Green Recycled Skirt

Added Jun 2, 2008

Plymouth, United...






I had this dress from (cough) Primark (cough) which I bought once for fancy dress, but I was never going to wear it again. So I detached the bodice, pleated the top of the skirt (like the Marie) and made a new waistband. And now its a skirt I can wear all summer long!

Material Notes

Green eyelet cotton

    It’s (the fabric) is called allover eyelet. It’s a type of embroidery. I will bet that it is going to have a lot of wear this summer. Smart use of fabric from a not-so-great dress. Nehmah

    Its great that you took something you didn’t like and turned it into something that you love. Turned out wonderfully!
