I finally did it.
I made a piece of clothing for myself that I
#1 LOVE and
#2 feel comfortable wearing outside of my house.
Here's the story:
My husband had these two grey shirts.
They were sooo soft but ended up in my sewing room because one had tiny holes and one had odd stains. So I cut strips around the holes and stains and whipped up an elastic waist skirt!
I wouldn't even attempt a tutorial on this because the whole project was an experiment with my serger. I'm still not sure if I had the correct settings for the differential feed, but I managed to get the seams smooth.
And I've even worn it....in public!!
More than once!
That in itself means it was a successful project!
Go be thrifty!
