Description

I had a simple mid length silk skirt slightly gathered on the front that looked very outdated. I used Burda Front Pleat Dress project as an inspiration for this makeover.

    Thank you, Sleepy-Dumpling! I am glad you enjoy the new “old” skirt :-) I also do a lot of new things out of old ones.. I restored a ripped Edvardian dress for my wedding.. I made a skirt out of jersey pants and i made a casual dress from a men’s shirt – the last one I am going to post in a few days as this can be useful for others…

    It looks great! Pretty fabric. It’s brilliant to make new things out of old. I made a skirt out of an old dress I had 20 years ago. I love that I’m wearing it now.
