Martha Stewart Moment:
Why buy a skirt, when you can make the one you have in your head — the perfect length, the perfect material, the perfect fit with a stitch that needs a little work (in my case).
By no means do I consider myself to be seamstress, but when I can’t find what I’m looking for, or what I find doesn’t match my body shape or price range I will find a work-around. I took a trip to my local Goodwill Store, and found a couple of men’s sweaters that were big enough to fit around my hips and long enough to get my desired length. Took it home — washed it, cut off the sleeves, added a little elastic band, and prepared to do a little sewing.
My grandmother is a seamstress, so I thought that I would see if I had a natural touch. I definitely need a little more practice, but I proud of my outcome.
What is your latest DYI project?!?
Don’t be afraid to define or make your own style!
