Before and After - Skirt to Misty Cami



New rule for me..... If I make something and after a year it hasn't been worn, then transform or donate. This skirt had been worn once since created in  March 2019 so time for a change




The skirt was made from McCall's 7906 (original post here) and is super cute and if my lifestyle was different it would have been worn so much.  During this unusual time, I have been reevaluating my clothes, my style and what I wear.  The skirt was a bit big when I made it and is now even bigger  and with all the pleats altering is more challenging.  Yes, I am listing several strikes against it but one plus is the fabric, which is fabulous and I didn't want to donate it.  I took it apart and made something new.  At first I thought Landers but I didn't have enough fabric.   I decided a Misty Top, which I made in June and love the style



I wanted to preserve the front buttons and used that as center front and changed the neckline.  I raised it with a curved.  The lining is muslin but the rest came from the skirt.  I did slim the Misty a bit, one for fabric limits and one for preference.  




The sewing is simple and the results are fun top which I will wear and enjoy wearing.




Do you have a garment you have remade?

  2. I love this Misty :) The skirt was really cute, too! I hear you on evaluating what you wear now - things are just different, and will probably be going forward. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. My wish right now is that God should continue to bless Dr Emu for his good works towards the life of those people who are heart broken. My name is Michael DeBruin and I am from the USA, it's been a while since my lover's attitude changed from being the caring type she has been to me, but later turned out not to be caring at all. But not long, I later discovered that my lover was having an affair with someone else. and also she told me she doesn't need me after all we pass through then a friend told me about a spell caster. that with the spell I will get back my woman, I took his cell number then called him and also what's-app him which he reply to me and I did some sacrifices to the spell man and he bought the items for me which he used for the sacrifices and later called me that before 48 hours my love will come back to me and now we are more in love with each other than ever. you can reach him on WhatsApp +2347012841542 or reach him via mail ; emutemple@gmail.com , my lover returned back and broke up with the other guy she was having a relationship with... Thank you Dr Emu.
