Leeds, United Ki...
Ah, man, has it been long since I last sewed something! And it feels so good to be reunited with my wee sewing machine. I’ve been finishing some projects I’ve had waiting around for far too long, this skirt being one of them. It’s made out of left-over fabrics from my graduation dress. Because of the shape of the left-over fabrics, I decided to sew an asymmetrical skirt, as there wasn’t enough fabric for a full skirt, and I didn’t fancy making it a mini. All in all, I’m pleased with the final result, even though the front of the skirt is almost dangerously short!
The crop top is also DIY’d out of a dress. I ripped the dress last year and wore it a couple of times afterwards. Despite my attempts to sew the back back together, it wasn’t permanently fixed, which is why I decided to turn it into a crop top instead. So far I’ve found this to be a good decision:-)
