I was given this dress, a hand-me-down.
Fine on its own, but it was screaming to be cut up into two skirts.
I love the pleated detail along the bottom of the skirt.
I cut the skirt section off at the gather.
Cut off the buttons and cut out the side seams.
It yielded 2m x 60cm of fabric, 2 pockets and 8 buttons.
I sewed gathered skirts as per usual.
2 skirts for free. Gotta love that!
