Yesterday I teased you with this photo of a skirt and tank on the woodpile. The skirt was a gift from my friend Col, and DM picked up that tank for me back in the day from Old Navy for - what was it, $2? Now the skirt won't zip over my belly and the tank won't fit for long. They were perfect candidates for a maternity makeover. What have these become?
It's an almost tunic length top. Perfect for wearing with leggings, pants or capris but nowhere near long enough to be a dress. I used some scraps from the skirt to make a flower after finding about a million tutorials online for said endeavor. I cut the tank below the bust (kept a half inch for seam allowance), cut the top off the skirt just below the zipper (so I could fit it over my head without needing a zipper on the finished product), and zigzagged them together inside-outwards. I then added a narrow strip of elastic just below the seam to make sure I didn't have tent-top syndrome.
I thought it turned out pretty darn good.
