It's such a long while since we've had a hot summer that I don't seem to have any hot weather clothes! I DO however have cupboards stocked with 'useful' bits of material.
I thought this would make a nice short skirt.
Once, a long time ago, it was a padded shouldered, drop-waisted, ankle length dress of mine.
Then it was cut and became a wide twirling dress for my toddler-daughter.
Now it's maybe on its last lease of life before becoming scraps for patchwork.
The piece above is wide enough for what I need but not long enough..
.. fortunately I discovered the peplum section of the original dress.
This is enough to make a frill for the hem and will give it the necessary extra few inches.
More posts to follow as I continue.....
