Yes, I'm talking like a contractor's daughter!
Here's the 'remodel'--two skirts for my nine-year old sister that started as ladies skirts from our local gospel mission thrift. They are both nice cottons with time consuming details. The navy blue is a GAP skirt, smooth lawn fabric with a hem tuck and full lining. All I had to do was pop open the casing and pull the elastic tighter! The other is a crisp cotton with all-around pleats, and a tiny little georgette edging at the hem. I removed part of the waistband, sewed a new side seam, added a bit of elastic inside the waistline and restitched it.
And the 'addition'--adding cute fabric and trim to the bottom of a couple of basic hand towels for the kitchen. I had not chosen colors for the living area of our home until recently, so I thought it would be fun to make some of the neutral items a bit more fun and personal!
