It might just be from seeing a lot of northern hemisphere fashion, but I always start feeling summery right around wintertime. So naturally I start cutting arms and legs off my clothes when I really should be adding them on.
This skirt wasn't at all winter-y to start with, so I didn't feel so bad chopping it up.
I folded it in half and turned it upside down so the waistband was at the bottom. I then used another top that fit well at the arm holes to trace and then cut. I cut a new neckline and unfolded it so I was left with a tank top shape.
Then all that was left to do was sew the shoulder seams. Because of the knit fabric there was no need to finish the edges (although that would make the neck lie much better).
I didn't cut it very neatly so the neck gapes a bit. I may fix that when summer comes, but in the meantime it's a useful running/pyjama/under top.
This second top was cute, but I'm not a fan of peplums. I ripped off the bottom section and had an instant infinity scarf! I then removed the clasps down the front (they always come undone at the worst moments!) and sewed up the front. I left the bottom edge raw, so now it serves the same function as the first top.
I have a lot more refashions to photograph, so will be contributing much more now!
