After watching a few episodes of The Great British Sewing Bee I thought I’d try out a bit of up- cycling just to see if I could do it myself! Whilst I have altered clothes in the past I’ve not really transformed them from one garment into another and it looked like fun. So I raided my husband’s wardrobe and found an old shirt that he didn’t really wear anymore (I did ask him first!!!) Here is his old shirt:
And after a bit of fiddling here is my new skirt!
It’s definitely wearable and cost me nothing. This skirt will be perfect for work. I would thoroughly recommend having a go at up-cycling the next time you bag up a load of old clothes. Think I will try to be a bit more wacky next time… have my eye on a few more old shirts that haven’t been worn for a while!!!
