So for a while now, I've been doing a bit of pinterest picture hoarding (let's be honest, that's what it really is) of tulle/ballet skirts. I just love everything about them. They seem so versatile; wear it to a nice event or put a cardigan on to make it more casual. Basically I've been really wanting one. (go here to see the rest of my picture hoard ; )
So I finally decided to make my own. But like always, money is like a tight ship around here, so I had to be creative; really creative. A while ago I was at our local goodwill and they had some really old sheer curtains (perfect material for my skirt) for sale. They were kind of disgusting looking, but I decided to keep an eye out for "newer" ones in the future. When visiting my sister, I told her about my crazy idea and she just happened to have some beautiful sheer curtains that she was going to get rid of anyway. Now Joy keeps things in excellent condition, so I was pretty excited.
The curtains were the perfect material, not sure what type exactly, but they don't fray and the material lays down nicely. And so, after a few nap times of sewing, the skirt was finally made.
Total Price: (thanks to my wonderful sister) $0
Thank you Joy!!
The pictures really don't do the skirt justice. It's so comfy and it's not too fancy and it's not too casual.
It was actually kind of a quick photo shoot because of this little guy; he just couldn't stay away from the action. I was actually quite fortunate to get a picture of him snuggling me, for he rarely snuggles. But it didn't last long until he wanted me to eat his hand. Silly silly boy.
I really wasn't going to add this picture, but here you go; totally an awkward moment
Well there you have it, another refashion.
If there's enough interest, I'll even do a tutorial.
