Another black thing/ Also made in kind of a rush, because I needed black clothing for work.
This is my own design 🙂
I had fun making it, although there is a previous prototype that isn’t very nice. I am planning to have a tinker with that one in future and see if i can salvage it.. *sigh* Sorry, currently no photos of that. This is why you shouldn’t rush things!
But I’m proud of my creative use of fabric here- I was able make one garment into two!
I took the maxi skirt I had made last year to wear in India, and chopped the hem off to make a skirt and top combo. What can I say, I needed solutions for work and quick. And cheap!
With fabric limitations I had to be careful and creative. There was nothing but tiny scraps left at the end. It didn’t leave me almost anything to tuck in so I had to add an extra panel at the bottom of a different remnant I had!
So the top half is designed to be tucked into the lower half but sneakily look like a dress. It’s a little slap dash, not my best work, but hey it’s a prototype and it was made in a hurry. eep!
The things i like best are the loops and buttons. i’ll definitely explore this design further in the future 🙂
I am giving the rest of my wardrobe a bit of a side eye now, wondering if there’s something I can chop up and give new life to. lol #upcycling
Also, I would like to make this patttern into both a blouse and a dress. We’ll see. 🙂
