Now that autumn is well and truly here, I've been packing away the Summer wardrobe and thinking about some Winter staples. It's always a good feeling to hand down outgrown clothing and donate a few bags to the oppy. I am becoming better at this each time.
So before I pack away the Summer threads, here's a little show 'n tell of a few 'grown up' things I made myself, all upcycled from preloved linen. This pretty top was made from a beautiful tablecloth gifted from my Aunt. I wore it over a a cream singlet top with faded skinny jeans and strappy beige sandals. I have worn it more this past Summer than I would have used it so a successful upcycling project, I think.
Next up a skirt x2. I'm a bit pleased with this one because I followed a real pattern! Under instruction-and lots of encouragement- from a dear friend I stitched up the green floral skirt. And just to be sure I could remember how to read a pattern and all it's jargon, I made the second one all by my little ol' self.
I love these skirts and have worn them both quite a bit but I do find the waistband sits a fraction too high for me as it's vintage pattern. The pattern, zippers and floral sheets were all thrifted.
