I wore it a few times but not as much as I had hoped I would. There just isn't much need for skirts when I am running around with the kids. So I decided to turn it into something I could get more use out of. I threw it onto the dress form and brought the old waist line in to create a boat neck hem. I also began seam ripping the sides where I wanted my arm holes to be.
To keep it easy and add some contrast, I grabbed some navy blue binding and used it to finish the arm holes.
The top was nearly there.
I then created a thin navy blue tie to add a beautiful shape to the top. I love how it creates the illusion of a peplum top.
So feminine and yet nice and casual too!
It also looks great under a blazer for dressier occasions.
I will be on the hunt for a navy blue blazer now to complete the ensemble. This was a great refashion for a mom without much sewing time lately.
Until next time . . . happy sewing!
