1 Frumpy Dress = 1 Funky Sweater + 1 Fab Miniskirt!

Dreaming of a White (Elephant) Christmas!
Black (And Yellow) Friday Dress

Hey guys (but probably mostly gals)!  Remember this frumpy sweater dress?

Remember me?

Come on!  This wasn’t that long ago!  Okay…just check out the original refashion.  It’s alright.  I’ll wait.

I wasn’t lying when I said I had plans for that bottom leftover scrap!

You see, there is a master plan for you!

This is a pretty simple one, folks.  This scrap obviously wants to be a cute skirt.  As I don’t have many skirts, this is what I want for it too.

I started pinning that top edge down, creating a casing.


Then, I stitched it down, making sure to leave enough space to thread some elastic through.

Dude…clean your sewing table. :/

I grabbed a scrap of elastic salvaged from an old fitted bed sheet (every scrap is sacred!) and threaded it through.

In ya go!

Then, I stitched it together.


And that’s all it took to turn this into a totally no-waste refashion!  Huzzah!

I paired my new skirt with my favorite tee (ethically made) and a refashed cardi.

It’s alight. :)

I’ve been a bit down lately, so I thought channeling Julia Child was worth a go!

What Would Julia Do?

I’ve been making a lot of recipes from her masterpiece, , realizing I’m not hungry, and then freezing my creations or giving them away.  At least I’m keeping busy.
