Refashioned Black Skirt

I took a very long black ponte knit skirt, cut it where it was way too short, and then added some lace to the bottom to make it acceptable to wear to work.  I couldn't believe I cut it so short.  Boy, I was ticked, but the lace came to the rescue.  I am made the blue top as well.  Nothing real exciting other than the skirt length.

I have finished my Thurlow capris, and will dye them this weekend.  I was going to color them to an olive drab, but after I priced how much it would cost to achieve that color, I just decided on a dark brown.  LOL  I am very cheap.

Next thing up for me to sew is a maxi dress. I hope it will look good on me.  I will try to get it cut out this weekend and possibly even sew some on it. 

Take care and God bless!


  1. Perfect solution.. Love the pretty on you.. My granddaughters have stayed this week with us, so I haven't sewed any..
    I am going to start working on some basics..
    Happy sewing.

  2. Isn't it annoying when you make a really fundamental should have known better mistake - but you got out of it nicely.

    I hope the dyebath goes well - I dyed a pair of pants black once, and found that when I wore them on a very hot day (43degrees C, about 105 F) that the dye and my perspiration mixed well together and dyed my underpants - they were never quite the same again :)
