|This top was given to me by a friend as it|
was too big for her, and thus for me, but
being as creative as one is, I decided to make
something of it!
I cut the sleevey section off, leaving just a circle of fabric
|Along the dotted line, I turned the fabric over|
twice and made a hollow hem, without
sealing off the ends.
|I machine stitched the hem.|
|Taking a piece of elastic that fits around my waist,|
I put a hairpin on the end so that I could thread
it through the hem easily.
|I tied a knot in the elastic and pulled it tight to my waist.|
|I could have left it the way it was as an a-line skirt, but I|
decided to turn it into a bubble/pumpkin skirt,
or whatever you want to call it.
I did this by sewing a large dart into both sides
of the skirt, or I could have made several smaller darts.
|Et Voila, a one-of-a-kind bubble skirt,|
handmade and cheap!
