When scrolling through all my favorite refashion blogs I came across the Ugly Skirt challenge from Skirt Fixation. I knew I wanted to try it so I messaged them and they sent me this black skirt made of some funky fabric. The shape was a little mermaid-esque, seeing as it flared out at the bottom, but I figured I could do some sort of peplum with it!
Here is how it started:
Here is how I did it:
Then I cut out the shape I wanted. I cut arm holes and a neck hole. I first sewed the shoulders together, highlighted below in green.This is where it got a little tricky, the fabric was very light and flimsy. I finished off the arm holes and neck line with my serger. After that I rolled them under and top stitched, highlighted above in red.
Well, we’d say we have a clear winner! When we picked out The Ugly Skirt, we were intrigued by that mystery fabric, and we L.O.V.E. what Lindsay has done with it!
