We've been really busy these last two weeks so I haven't had time to post anything. But so much has happened that I have a ton to share :) First of all, let me share my two new skirts with you. T he summer is nearly at an end but the weather is still nice for a few days so I just have enough to take them out for a test run. The first skirt I bought at the quarterly TRAID sale for only £2. Not a lot of upcycling happening there, it was only two sizes too big for me, so I just chopped a bit off the top and added a new elastic. The photo didn't come out very well, but the skirt has a lot of material and is lovely and purple :)
I also may have a crooked line somewhere but as it's a skirt no one is going to notice.
The second project is definitely an upcycling project!
One of the girls from work gave me this dress. Not entirely my style but I like the bottom part with the lacing so it has potential. Before it went off to the charity shop, I had a go at improving this.
Again I chopped off the top and added elastic. Simple but effective :)
I now have a lovely new skirt for at work!
These were instant gratification projects, some of those are needed too every now and then ;) I still have so many projects in the works, especially as I decluttered my crafting area and found a lot of stuff I actually forgot I had! My creativity sense is tingling...
