What materials did you use? A size 22 skirt found at a charity shop, brown cotton fabric, shirring elastic and thread

What are you most proud of? Being able to make something old into something new and I now have a new dress which cost me about $12 in total!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep your mind open, the options are endless in the ways you can change, alter and improve old clothing! And a great way to practice on things that don't cost much at all!

Well done! You would never know it was a skirt.
