Salvaging a 70's Outfit

Hello Refashion Co-op. My project today is made from something I got at a clothes swap. This wonderful, crazy, vintage 70's fabric is actually part of an ENTIRE outfit. Imagine a head to toe ensemble made of this pattern. It made you dizzy to think of it, didn't it?

The top was in good shape but very small. The wrap skirt was lined and in great condition but it was really small too.

It was delicate fabric and I had some issues when working with it. It was easily damaged and I got nervous I would ruin it. In the end I made this simple elastic waist skirt. 

For more pictures and details you can check I Can Work With That.
Thanks for reading, now go make something fun for yourself.

Cute skirt. I like the fabric but agree that it needs some solid colors with it.

Thanks Cindy. It is a very busy print isn't it. It really caught my eye. I love it. A little wild and unique.

The fabric is so much cuter in less overwhelming quantities. Great job!

Thanks Carissa. That is a good way to put it. I love older clothing but the pattern can be over the top at times.
