I started with this long black skirt from Motherhood Maternity. The problem? Well, there were many! It wasn’t made for a 6 foot tall woman...no maternity clothes are, thus it was yuck length! The second problem was that the material was so lightweight that it was almost immodest to wear (read: see-through) not to mention terribly cold! Which lead to a third problem; the slit was ripped, fixed, ripped again, fixed again, etc. Yeah, so basically not wearable!
Then there was this sweater. Yep! For real! But the person who gifted it to us intended for us to refashion it, not wear it. Too big for anyone in this house, too scratchy to wear without anything underneath, too thin to be refashioned into a sweater skirt without a layer underneath. (If you are a regular refashion-er, you immediately see where to go with these two things!)
Well, do you think that’s an improvement? Those items are definitely more wearable now!
