Thrift store skirt redo done!

If you can get past the messiness of the teenage girl's bedroom, you'll notice that the skirt is slightly big on me.

All that I really needed to do was take in the sides, HOWEVER, it is lined and the waist has small cording that makes it necessary to cut and resew in place.  I am happy with how it turned out.  I was going to make it for my 15 year old, but I couldn't get her to put it on so I could pin it to her size.  So I have ME a new skirt.
My girls think it's hilarious to have me pose and have them take a picture.  I get NO respect! So I tried taking the picture myself the first time using a mirror, but the flash necessitated me being mocked in order to have them take the photo.

                                                   Me - at peace

                                                    Me - being mocked

I'll be sure to show this to hubby - he needs to see that I can finish a project.

What a great job you did! And your teenager's room is NEAT compared to my daughter's room! Enjoy!

CUTE. Nice job on the remake! And we're all here to back you up when you're mocked. Isn't mocking what families are for? ;-)

You did a great job Ruthie - you are a very pretty gal.

I have tried to email you a couple times responding to your comments and they come back undeliverable.

Very impressive repurposing! I'm not sure I could pull that one off. I'd mess up the skirt before I could get it back on. Oh and I like both after pictures, at peace and being mocked! Ha

Thanks for your comment about our little dog, Harriet. We rescued her when she was 4 and she was already named. Turns out "Harriet" means "ruler of the house!!!"
