This is #2.
"Work" Fall Core Wardrobe:
*Up-cycled from Pre-retirement stash. Retirement did not take; I accepted consultant work.
-Casual Work / Early Childhood Center visits; think playgrounds and 3 yrs. olds
-Travel / 4 weeks/ four states/ six flights/ pack light.
-Great Lakes Region; as cold as our Texas winters.
Before: UFO Skirt in the Refashion stash. Two Liz Claiborne tight pencil skirts with waistbands/zippers removed.
After: Dirndl-type skirt with slip/lining stitched in. It is not fun to forget to pack slips or have elastic give out. Business casual to wear in Early Childhood Center visits.
*Combined two slim-fit pencil skirts. Stitched/serged seams.
*Replaced waistbands/zippers with t-shirt and elastic fabric band.
*Lined the skirt with lining from an old prom dress.
|After: Dirndl-type skirt.|
Business casual for visits to
playgrounds/ kids chairs/ 3 year olds.
Elastic and t-shirt waist-band.
