I was originally going to try and turn this into a dress but it was too short on me to start with …
So I got chopping and had a play!

Had abit of a play with it but it was still to long for what I was thinking of!
So I took off the pockets.

Saving for later!

And chopped it some more…

Then throw in a bit of sewing…

Then I stitched the pockets back on!

Welcome back!

And TADA!
I now have a cool summer skirt!

It is a glorious day out in Wellington today so I’m off to enjoy the sun outside, maybe with a cider once I have picked my big girl up from school!
