I bought this skirt back in October at a thrift store in Blacksburg, VA. Back then, it was a full length "teacher skirt" - I brought it home and cut it up above my knees and attempted a hem that would almost give it that bubble skirt look, then i used leftover material from the lining to wrap around my waist and tie into a bow! I like how many subtle colors there are in the flowers that I can play with. It feels like a garden party... in skirt form! As for the shoes, I love them! I just received them in the mail the other day and absolutely adore them!
As proud as I am of reinventing this skirt, I know I still have a lot of learning to do when it comes to sewing! My mom actually laughed when she saw my hem job! Soooo, I decided to sign up for a sewing class and try to improve! In addition to recreating some great thrift finds, I have a nice collection of vintage sewing patterns that I would REALLY love to try out!
