This is #26 for my after retirement “Back to Elementary School Wardrobe”.
My goal is 10 Re-fashions per month during this school year.. It is November and I am working on my October goal. I hope to catch up during winter break.
1st Re-fashion years ago was to combine t-shirt and denim skirt into a loose fitting dress.
This is similar to a version with a similar t-shirt and linen skirt posted last year.
Black too small slip with worb elastic from the stash.
PROBLEM: 6 AM search for the right slip was not fun.
STEPS: Remove worn elastic from slip. Serge top edge. Add lace panel to slip front to enlarge. On the similar dress, a scarf was inserted to repair worn skirt lining.
Baste and stitch the slip into waist of dress.
AFTER: An easy go to for school day mornings.
Many teachers and staff wear jeans, so this denim skirt/dress fits right in.
1st Re-fashion was to combine denim skirt and loose fit t-shirt,
2nd Re-fashion was to add a too small slip as a lining.
Top-stitching joins top & skirt.
1st Re-fashion skirt & top unlined.
2nd Re-fashion added black slip.
