Maxed Out Four

Hello Refashion Co-op. This is my last maxi skirt for now. I discovered it was actually a fake wrap skirt. That gave me some extra fabric to work with. As you can see I made a romper. Sort of.

I made some loose, high-waist shorts with an elastic waistband to start with. I used most of the lower half of the skirt to make the shorts. That left the top of the skirt untouched.

I added straps to the top half of the skirt and it became a little top. 

When I tuck the shirt into the shorts it looks like a romper but it is a lot easier to wear because it is 2 pieces. (It is a little annoying to have to remove ALL your clothes to use the ladies room. That is what makes rompers more difficult to wear in my opinion.)

Thanks for reading, for more details and pictures go to I Can Work With That.
