Plaid skirt into bag – Fusta modificaa in geanta

14 Jan


This skirt I received as a gift a loong time ago . I think I wore it once , only to realize it is a bit too short for my taste. It has been sitting in the back of my closet for a couple of years now , but not it got to see the light of day again , and look fabulous doing that!


I am a rookie at sewing and also a bit too lazy , so it was natural to leave the lining of the skirt in its place. I did not add another lining – it would have looked funkier with a fun patterned fabric , but it was late at night and laziness kicked in- but I somehow prefer it this way .

The next step was to adjust width just to make it more compact.It looked cute , like a uniform skirt for little girls.

Then I just sewed together from about a palm from the seam of the skirt . For a final touch I sewed the fabric belt and made it a handle for the bag


Et voila! What do you think ? 🙂

    Sometimes lazy is fine! You’ve inspired me to see what I can do with an old skirt of my own!
