Colourblocked winter skirt

This dress didn't work for me (made me look boxy, instead of curvy, as I think it was supposed to) and it was too tight across the chest. But I really liked the fabric and the colourblocking.

I tried to make it work for me in many different ways, but eventually I grabbed my scissors and sliced the wretched thing in half and made myself a nice and warm winter skirt, which I like. But I am still slightly annoyed with that old dress's defiance...

(And in case anyone wondered, the shirt is a refashion too, from the beginning of this year: ).

The skirt looks neat and maybe more versatile than a dress.

Hahaha, defiance. That made me laugh. Great skirt.
