This is a picture of the skirt I brought for £1.99 in Oxfam. As soon as i saw the floral fabric i knew instantly that i liked it being the floral hoarder i am. The size however is a 16 something that is waaay off my actual size, however as it is a wrap around skirt its easy to alter the buttons in order to tighten the waist. Literally all i had to do was cut the buttons off and sew them tighter but so that they still were correctly positioned next to there hole. I then shortened the skirt which is pretty straight forward however i was left with quite alot of fabric to spare so i decided to make a two piece set as i have seen alot recently in topshop but dont have enough money to buy them :( I made a simple pattern piece using a crop top i already own and brought a zip to go down the side, if anyone is interested in me making a tutorial on how i did it then leave a comment and ill try and put one together ( probably a video as i always find them much more helpfully )
So anyways this is how the finished piece came out and at £1.99 this is defiantly something i shall be doing alot of in the future!!
