We were given this skirt, it was a size 10, a bit grotty and stained and, well, you can see, not in the best condition. However, "G" could see it's potential and "wanted it!"
First I cut out the dodgy old zip and seam and made an new, zipless side seam. I also cut off the original waistband and made a casing for elastic.
Next came the fun part - dyeing!
It was first dyed in a light turqoise colour and hung out to dry. Then I attempted graduation dyeing with a darker blue by dipping just the bottom hem for 10 minutes or so, wringing it out and wrapping in plastic overnight. Washed out again, hung out to dry and.......
Voila! A brand new skirt with a marvellous twirl factor!
Guess who else wants one now?
