|I've worn it twice this week!|
How often do you find yourself in a dressing room, all alone, no salesperson in sight, to take some cell phone selfies? Never? Me neither. Until this past weekend, that is.
My daughter's school leases a space in one of the local malls for their yearly Student Art Show. I'm doing my volunteer duties and covering this afternoon's shift, enjoying all of the amazing art. (Seriously great art!) And I'm wearing my new maxi skirt.
This store space used to be an Ann Taylor I think, so it is equipped with dressing rooms. So yeah, I took some

The cami and linen sweater are old and RTW. The skirt is the newer piece here. Actually it used to be a dress that just didn't see much wear, mostly because it was so revealing at the bust. I would typically throw it on over my bathing suit at the beach. The fabric is great, comfy, smooth, and drapey, (probably ITY poly) so the other day I got a wild hair (hare?), cut the top off and made a new maxi skirt. I have enjoyed wearing my new maxi skirt, and I think it will see the light of day much more often than the dress ever did.

I can't say I love the sweater with this skirt - not quite the right length/proportion. I'll be making a couple tops to coordinate with this skirt very soon, and I have the perfect fabric in the stash!
I have a small pile of other items awaiting a remake, and enjoying this skirt makes me want to get to my pile. I'm not doing MMM this year, so maybe I'll just do a little personal 'Re-made May'?! (Next year I want to do MMM, though. Hold me to that, okay?)
How about you, are you into re-making your rarely worn clothes into something you'll wear more? Breathing new life into an old garment? Cutting up your husband's t-shirts to try out the latest underwear pattern? (Not that I've done that. Much, anyway.) I'd love to hear about your favorite remakes!
Still trying to catch up on posting, so I'll be back soon. Until then, happy sewing friends!
