Top - to - Bubble skirt!

This top was given to me by a friend as it
was too big for her, and thus for me, but
being as creative as one is, I decided to make
 something of it!
I cut the sleevey section off, leaving just a circle of fabric
that would fit over my waist.

Along the dotted line, I turned the fabric over
 twice and made a hollow hem, without
sealing off the ends.

I machine stitched the hem.
Taking a piece of elastic that fits around my waist,
I put a hairpin on the end so that I could thread
it through the hem easily.

I tied a knot in the elastic and pulled it tight to my waist.
I could have left it the way it was as an a-line skirt, but I
decided to turn it into a bubble/pumpkin skirt,
or whatever you want to call it.
I did this by sewing a large dart into both sides
of the skirt, or I could have made several smaller darts.

Et Voila, a one-of-a-kind bubble skirt,
handmade and cheap!

    1. Thank you!
      I love it too, but I made it at the wrong time of year 'cos it's really thin fabric, so it'll have to wait until summer - maybe I will re-blog it!


Please comment, I love to hear your comments, questions and theories! :)
