So yesterday, I had a sudden panic. I am going up to Oxford today to spend the weekend with my boyfriend , and we are going out out, and I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!!!
Well, I do, but I mean I wanted a plain black skirt, which bizarrely, I didn’t have. (aside from all of my work skirts I mean). And so I cast my mind to the bag I have of clothes to refashion, and I remembered a black velvet skirt which was just begging to be shortened.
And shortened it had to be! You can’t tell here, but I was standing precariously on my wheely desk chair to get the length into the shot! it was so so so long! I maybe could have pulled it off as a calf length skirt, but it will get so much more use as a shorter skirt!
So I pinned and lopped and sewed, and voila!
So it looks wonky, I am just hoping that’s because I put it on wonky, not because I cut and sewed it wrong!! But yes, as you can see, it is much shorter, which means I have a lovely bit of velvet to play with at some point yay!
Oh yes, I didn’t mention the fact that I had bought this in a charity shop! (But you had probably guessed anyway! It cost me £1.99 in the British Red Cross.
