Suit to skirt refashion

I found this skirt suit in my local charity shop to use for the refashioners challengeI made it into a knee length A line skirt.  The jacket formed the greater part of the transformation, the skirt was used for donor panels.

I used a newly bought invisible zipper foot to make some piping

Basically the skirt was made up of 2 layers of panels with the piping between.  The high stretch content of the fabric meant I could add a soft waistband without needing a zip.

There are full details and more photos here

What a clever way to use the pieces. I love the design too. Nice job!
