Hello Refashion Co-op. How is your sewing going? I thought this skirt would make a great and easy transition to a shirt. I was wrong. It is the most delicate cotton I have ever seen and it was very difficult to work with. I assumed cotton would be easy and I was so wrong.
I began by cutting off the waistband. That part was easy enough.
I used my dress form to flip it upside down and pin the shoulders together. The fabric didn't want to drape or stay pinned together. My sewing machine didn't seem to be able to handle this fabric. I should have used some hem tape on the side seams, it kept getting caught in the machine and it was annoying.
I used the waistband to finish the bottom of the shirt. It helped give it some shape and was an easy end to this project. I really do like the colors and the pattern so it wasn't all bad.
Thanks for reading and for more pictures and details go to I Can Work With That.
