Based on it's condition I would be willing to bet that it's been living in an attic for the last 40 years.
The color is AMAZING!
The only little problem with this homemade beauty is that it's too small for me. Not to worry though, i'm an old pro at upsizing skirts!
|Skirt with a side zipper|
This skirt had a side zipper and was partially lined. If it was made of wool or scratchy material I would have saved the lining. This polyester beauty was soft, so I left the lining out.
|Cut off the too small parts|
The original design was for this to be an ankle length skirt. Cutting off the top left plenty of fabric for a tea length shirt. I made the cut just below the zipper so that I didn't have to use a seam ripper to remove it.
I folded over the top and made an elastic waistband.
I've done other Plus size Refashions. This was my first upsize refashion.
