Me Made May Days 15 and 16
Cup of tea in a new outfit!
This is the skirt I bought on my charity shop trip on Day 5.
It's a little bit too big! Either that or I've found an amazing new slimming plan!.
Firstly, I cut off some belt hooks. The belt was long gone and I didn't think I would need one (once I had taken it in a tiny bit that is).
Then I took two panels out of the back of skirt. I was lucky because it was a centre back zip so I didn't need to take that out. I then cut the waistband to fit and hand sewed it back together.
In true make do and mend style I then used the fabric from the discarded panels to make a matching headband. Does it look a bit too family von trapp? All together now 'high on a hill was a lonely goatherd....'!
Oh yes, and yesterday I wore...
..Me Made gloves!
