I’ve been going through some unfinished drafts on my blog and decided to complete them. This is one from 2019, or possibly even 2018.
Attracted by the bright orange colour pallet I bought this maxi dress at a charity shop in Bristol for £7 with the specific purpose of converting it to a maxi skirt to lounge around the house in.
The fabric is some kind of synthetic knit and the refashion is basically cutting the skirt portion off and adding a waistband.
I used some grey jersey, also bought in Bristol at Fabricland, from my stash to make a simple fold over waistband and salvaged the ties from the dress to use on the skirt.
The remaining fabric from the bodice came in handy for a later t-shirt refashion project.
I like wearing maxi skirts, they are warm and casual but only really wear them outside the home when on holiday, my problem, not the skirt’s problem.
This is a great skirt to put on when you’ve had a really big meal, can’t wait to get tights off and it’s too early to go to bed yet.
