I have been waiting for the right inspiration to refashion it. I saw Disney's tutorial and knew the skirt would be suitable. As one of the astute commenters on Disney's post pointed out, if you like Anthropologie's Cloudless Skies Paperbag Skirt this is a cost effective way of achieving a similar look. Keep an eye out for long skirts.
I took six inches off the hem which I used to create the ruffled paper bag waist and a sash. I bound the sash in navy bias tape.
I am posting this to Sew A Straight Line's Make it Work. If you are interested in refashion, I recommend reading all the posts in this series. I have found it really inspiring.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend. It's a long weekend here and for Canadians summer's unofficial start. We spent so much time outdoors yesterday enjoying the sunshine and today we went to the Royal Ontario Museum to see the Water Exhibit and up the CN Tower. One of those days which was just a ton of fun.
Happy Victoria Day! This post is linked to
