No time to waist


I bought this skirt from a local charity shop, I liked the colour and design but it was a size too small.

Due to the flared shape this could be fixed by taking a couple of inches off the waist.

More of a resizing than a refashion.

There were very slippery but lovely silk fabric panels with a nice flared  band around the bottom.

Sometimes the deconstruction of a garment can be quite interesting as unexpected elements appear from within.

I turned the waist under a couple of cm simultaneously making the skirt shorter and bigger.

There are more details and photos here
