Outfit of the Day: Refurbished Skirt

This skirt has been too big for a long time and I finally decided to hem the fabric at the waist together to make it fit better. I added in a zigzag stitch to add visual interest and I love it.

Two events conspired:

First, I saw this pink and purple pattern fabric remnant at Joann’s and I instantly fell in love a few months ago. I wasn’t exactly sure what to do with it, so it was waiting in a pile.

Second, I was so happy with how the skirt looked that I decided to add more.

Inspired and with sewing machine in hand, I added pockets! I don’t know about you, but skirts and dresses with pockets are instantly 1000X better.
