Right chaps, I’m in need of suggestions. I bought this calf length skirt for a couple of pounds from a charity shop the other day, mostly because the fabric is awesomesauce, but when I tried it on it sits so low on my hips it’s obscene. It’s also bias cut, grr.
But those aren’t the main problems, I mean, it’s easy peasy to take in a skirt. The thing I really hate is the fact that the boats are upside down and at a stupid angle! What idiot (BHS if you’re interested) would use this fabric on this skirt in this way? If the boats were even the right way up I could live with the angle.
So, my question is, what would you do with it? How would you fix it’s many problems? Would you even try? I really love the fabric so I’m reluctant to relegate it to the ‘what the hell do I do with this?’ pile but that bias leaves me with so little fabric to play with, and I’d love something wearable from it. Please help! I know you crafty folks will come up with some good ideas :)
While I was out, I also found a boxfull of wooden cotton reels. I love wooden cotton reels. They were 35p each so I grabbed and ran for the till, dropping half of them on the way (with a little charity shop lady following behind, scooping them up and re-wrapping the thread). They’ll go with the others I have, strictly for decoration purposes you understand, I couldn’t bring myself to use them!
