Birds Flying High, You Know How I Feel

Hello Lovelies,

Sorry the ol' blog has been a bit quiet lately I have had lots of exciting/scary news over the past week and a half and so have been a tad stressed. Hopefully next week things will be back to normal and I can share everything that has happened recentely.

I thought I would share with you a very speedy DIY I completed today. At the moment my funds are very low so buying new clothes has definitely not been allowed so I have decided to go through my wardrobe and try and create something new. The first simple DIY I have tried to turning a dress into a skirt. The dress I picked was this cute Primark number. I wore it lots and lots when I bought it however as with all Primark jersey it eventually shrunk making it too short to wear.


All I did to create a more wearable skirt was chop off the top just under the armhole. Measure some wide elastic around my waist, pin onto the dress and fold over the top to create a tube. I quickly sewed round making sure not to catch the elastic in the seam and it was finished!




I love this length of the skirt not and it is a much better fit :)

Have you tried any speedy DIY's recentely?
