This refashion was more like a total rebuild. After thinking I could just alter the hem, I still wasn’t happy and I eventually unpicked all the seams and made a whole new skirt from the pieces.
I love this fabric! The mint is so versatile to wear and it’s a nice pop of colour.
It was made using the pattern for the Marie skirt on Burdastyle but without the tapered hem. I had hoped for feminine and casual, but the fabric is like denim, so it’s quite heavy and stiff.
To be honest, I’m not totally sold on the end result. It could still grow on me, so I’ll give it time, but if I don’t wear it much, you could see it reappear sometime as a pencil skirt!
