I was bored this weekend and decided to finish up one of my sewing projects. Since I’m pretty petite, it’s sometimes easier to do certain alterations on my own than to send it to the tailor. Usually, I hem my own jeans and slim down baggy shirts.
Today, it was to create a bubble skirt. A while ago, I went to Crossroads and picked up an amazing dress for $7. I wore it once, maybe…and ever since, it’s just been sitting in my closet. It was a silk, trapeze-style dress that was a little long, but with a belt, it ended up looking decent.
Anyways, I wanted to make this piece more versatile by turning it into a skirt. It was simple enough, just add an elastic waistband and that was it! In the end, it turned out pretty good despite being a bit long. For now, it’s a high waisted bubble skirt and it’s perfect for me!
