After rooting through my overcrowded wardrobe (so overcrowded in fact, things are bursting out of it) I came across this top I hadn't worn in years - literally its age 12... I absolutely adore this dusty pink colour and chiffony-type material is my favourite so I obviously, since the recent purchase of my sewing machine, had to upcycle this baby!
I unpicked the odd flower attachment thing (my fashion opinions have changed since i was twelve, surprisingly!) and cut along the seam between the top part and the bottom part of the top (try saying that quickly 10 times...).
I re-sewed the seam of the skirt and added a gorgeous crochet/lace finish at the top of the skirt. I'm obsessed with this at the moment - I've brought about 10 metres worth! I also re-did the fastening of the skirt with press-studs.
And finitoooo, we have a chiffon-ish, dusty pink skirt!
Thanks muchly for reading, I really hope this encourages you to take something old and make it new and all at a teeny-tiny price!
