refashion skirts

After finishing my school work (corset + skirt .. which I also should post pics of) I had some time to do anything, among other things I refashioned some old clothes into skirts.

This skirt is made of the other leg of the leopard jeans (the other leg I used for the top of this dress).
Actually those size 46 trousers were much better present than they would have been if they were actually my size.. I got a skirt, a dress and a pencil case out of them instead of just jeans! :D


 This skirt is made of some small child's trousers. Never should throw any clothes away, if the fabric is nice, you can make something new out of it!


 And this is made of the bottom of a huge jacket. This skirt is now one of my very rare clothes which also has pockets! :D (hmmh it looks quite awful as I hadn't ironed it yet...) 
I started making a bolero jacket of the top of this jacket, but haven't finished it yet as I wasn't sure yet what kind of sleeves I want.. 
 

And YAAY, it's my summer holiday now! 2½ months of warmth and freedom. ♥

    @Angie: Hehh, of course you can if you want! I'd love to alter clothes for other people too :)) Wouldn't mind coming to Australia either.. maybe someday!

    @Cydonian: Yeahh :) Why to throw useless clothes away if they can be made wearable again!

  18. Oh I LOVE these! Especially the leopard. That skirt, a fitted black top (Preferably backless!) and a sick pair of shoes--plus a good smoky eye-pale lip combo. Ahh I love it! I wish my sewing skills were better.
