I refashioned this from a skirt I found at a sample sale. Actually “refashioned” is probably an incorrect word considering I only managed to cannibalise the waistband and the rest is made with my own pattern from the fabric of the original skirt that I “reclaimed”. It looks amazing in real life but I’m terrible at photographing anything. I was in a right state because I did such a great job of making it but when I tried it on it was too small! I let all the seams out and it fits now (just)! It has a cool exposed metal zip at the back which is totally an homage to deconstructionism and not at all a last resort measure to take it out an extra couple of cms ;) OoooO AND the scallops even line up (I think that was just luck)!
Oh and I have heaps of other projects that you can see on my blog
