This re-fashion is from an ankle-length, very heavy, silk/linen blend goodwill find. I added some random lines/pleats throughout the skirt and cut off the macrame that was originally part of the bottom of the skirt. As this skirt was very large, I had to take it in quite a bit… but I didn’t want to lose the macrame detail so I gathered it in specific places & attached it as an over-lapping layer. Kinda funky, kinda cool ;)
I saw the over-lapping layer technique in a Harper’s Bazaar issue.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
