Velvet Skirt Refashion

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.

So I pinned and lopped and sewed, and voila!

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.
