Description

I bought a maxi skirt last year which was too big for me, with a view of upcycling it into a shirred sundress.

It was a really quick project that I managed to finish on a weekday evening, in preparation for my upcoming mini-moon in 3 weeks’ time :)

More photos and how I did it blogged here

    Oh so cute, looked it up on your blog and I might have to do something similar with some maxi skirts I have! Enjoy your mini moon – seems like a good summer to escape the UK (might actually be dry in other parts of Europe!)

      Thanks for your kind words. Ah yes the weather! I’m working on the assumption that it’ll be raining on the wedding day, and hopefully I will be pleasantly surprised!
