I bought a vintage 80's skirt for $5 at the Collingwood Peoples' Market a couple of Sundays ago, with the aim of shortening it for my daughter for her to wear. She didn't like it. It was too small for me but it did fit if I wore it as a strapless top! Which got me thinking about refashioning it into a top using a pattern I had from Treasured Collection.
It all turned out quite well I think.
