A realize that doesn’t sound very exciting, but sometimes there are pieces that are what I call 90-percent-of-a-good-idea.
This skirt was pretty fabric, but long on me and a few sizes too large.
Six inches off the length.
Four inches out of the diameter.
An attempt at a side kick ruffle, which obviously from the pictures needs more ironing. (Taken by Husband. Late. At an odd angle. And I am not a good enough blogger to try them again.)
And the leftovers made into a fun flower.
Ta-dah! Now, that is a good idea!
