Skirt - Charity shop £2.50
It's been a while since I've wrote any charity shop / bootsale or diy related blog post's. When I first started this blog I wrote about beauty which slowly developed into mainly diy's & my charity shop haul's so it's nice to go back to it.
I picked up this long rather un-flattering skirt when in my favourite charity shop last week, at £2.50 I picked it up along with some other little treasures. I was so happy when I found this because I've been keeping a mental note in my head to keep an eye out for a linen type of skirt that I can shorten & hem for summer and possibly dye in a bright pink so I was really pleased when I spotted this.
It was really quick & easy to alter, I wanted to wear it high waisted so I popped it on and marked when I wanted it to finish. After cutting it off I gave it a quick sweep with the iron folding over the hem and sewing a straight stitch. I didn't really want the zip button front so the back magically became the new front, it also had two dart's so it fitted just perfectly.
I love that a skirt I would never have worn has now become something that I'll probably love this summer by just a few simple changes, I also like how it's like a 60's inspired mini skirt.
I will probably have an outfit post with this soon!
I also thought about doing a blog post on tip's on Charity Shops and boot sales (now summer is beginning!) if anyone wanted to see it?
Do you like this idea?
