Re-Fashioned


Miss Pretty-Pretty

 I've sewn a bit of extra material to the bottom of Rose's skirts so that they'll be longer and useable next year.  The skirt Rose is wearing has a bit of flowered material I bought at Wal-Mart, and the other skirt in the picture is obviously updated with a bit of extra material I had left over from making little valances in the kitchen.  I will also later make the denim skirts that are available locally PRESENTABLE with a bit of material at the bottom.  Sorry, folks, but the girl will NOT be sporting the "Denim Uhura" look next year.  The skirts are actually a bit long for her right now, but I've done them up with *next* year in mind.


"The Sound of Music" look.  Hung in kitchen for demonstration purposes only.  D was afraid he'd have to deal with "dippy" decor.

  2. That is ADORABLE! And so smart! I wouldn't even have known you sewed something different on if you hadn't said something - they look terrific!

    I should do this for my daughter - she's skinny and 9 feet tall, so skirts that are long enough fall down.

    Also - "Denim Uhura" might be the funniest thing I've read all day. Mrs. C. For The Win!

  3. You are so good! I really want to learn to sew. I'm thinking of getting a used machine so Miss Moppet and I can learn together. I wonder if I'm too old to start now...

  4. I was thinking of doing this to some of Beverly's pants. When I was in Junior high, a lot of kids added material to the bottom of their jeans. (Oh, and we slit them up the side and added a triangle to make the leg wider too. We were loverly!) Beverly is still under 50 pounds but she is getting taller and taller. I am having trouble finding a lot of size 7 Slims.

  10. I have been sewing a lot lately too! After losing weight I have all these clothes I can't wear. I broke out my sewing machine and just made them all smaller. It's like Christmas again having all these clothes to wear. :D Good idea with the skirt though. I'm gonna have to do that also.
