Look at that! I'm two for two! So I scored a skirt suit from the thrift store the other day- please see huurrrrr for the original post from yesterdee.
Here's the basic jist- except pattern on the top AND bottom.
I tried every which way to make the top work, too. But every time...I felt I looked like a really shitty version of this (and not in a good way):
So I just turned the skirt...into a dress. And what's that? CINCHED THE WAIST. I love cinching waists- it's the easiest way for a no sew upcycle. Cheers.
I felt like I was really being a little silly with these pictures so I took some serious liberties with color editing. If you think I'm being ridiculous, you're right. I am. But I'm having fun so go scratch!
PS- I miss myspace blogs where you get to write what you're listening to- I'm bangin' out to Skrillex right now. It's fun.
plus one belt and sweater.
some shotty photography.
minus the jacket.
plus the mirror.
Thar she blows!
note: these photos were taken on my lil' lunch break at work. I like tiles.
