Thanks for bearing with me folks, I've finally started getting the apartment in order, just to give you an example of how much clothing I have here's a little scene from my life:
Lacey: Wow you have a lot of fabric in your room
Jeannette: No Lacey that's all clothes
Lacey: (Raises eyebrows nervously) All of it? Ohhhh
So it's taking a long time to get fabric/clothing and general crap in to some semblance of order!
Anyway, I picked this up during my thrift store trip for the Ugly to Awesome craftster challenge, at the time I couldn't think what to make of it but it finally hit me. I hacked off the top of the jacket, folded 4 inches down and zig zag stitched two lines giving me a channel for some elastic which gave it the great scrunched up look , I changed up the buttons and wam bam thank you Mam a comfy skirt to add to my wittled down (half packed away wardrobe.
It'll be perfect for the warmer weather we're having, it reached a high of +3 today, shock horror! and no exaggeration but Canadians walk around in shorts and t-shirts in this weather, having only been in the country for 4 years I'll be sticking to my sweaters and Jeans though!
Ugly before shot
Take care folks and remember next post Wednesday!
