Happy Father's Day!!!





This was a top that I made awhile ago that was not very flattering on me. I saw the opportunity for a quick and easy transformation, and decided to make it into a skirt! It was a little too short as is, so I added a border, with the stripes going the other way.
I also went to a lot of garage sales last week! I found a big tin of zippers for only 50 cents!! And a cute skirt that no adult should wear in public, but will make a lovely dress for my niece!:) You'll see what I mean sometime soon!:)

    When you make something yourself, its just so more unique!
