My MIL gave Demi a cute little school skirt. The skirt wouldn't fit her because she's so thin. I ripped it apart added buttons and a button hole to the inside waist band. I then ran some DIY button hole elastic inside the band and stitched it all back together.
I think it would have been faster if I made a new skirt from scratch, I think I sew faster making my own things. Does anyone else dislike mending store bought things? Maybe my problem is I don't like to work on something I didn't get to make? The up side is it is another finished project so I am a happy girl for finishing. Please forgive my poor photos. I have a hard time taking photos at 6:30 AM. I'm not a morning person. Lets pretend I didn't chop off her head in this photo.
I also made a pair of leg warmers. I made them from a sweater.
I'll make 2 more from the same sweater another night. I added a lace and button bow to dress them up.
I made a crazy amount of leg warmers back in Nov. I didn't make any of them to fit the school dress code (I started making them for Sat. dance class) my girls love to wear them (they are dress/skirt wearing chicks). I think by the end of this month I might have a stack of school wearing leg warmers as big as the leg warmer collection I made in Nov. My girls will have warm legs this winter. I'm starting to worry the dresser and closet might explode before warm weather come back.
