While surfing the interweb for new ideas and new discoveries in children's sewing I learnt about Refashioning.
One day I cut the legs off a pair of my horrible old jeans that were covered in paint as It was far too hot to wear them otherwise. I was almost going to throw out the scraps of denim when I realised there were large patches of denim without pain splatters on them and decided to see if I could get enough scraps to make Aimee a skirt.
Here is the result!
I made the band out of a super stretched t-shirt my partner would never wear and made the flower to cover a small patch of black pain splatter.
I'm quite pleased with the result and though it's not very fancy, I'm proud that I used stuff I already had to make it and I made it without a pattern!
I got the idea for making this skirt after seeing this tutorial Homemade by Jill's Guest post on Kokodesigns
Happy Sewing everyone!
