My $3 skirt make over

My relationship with this skirt started at Goodwill, ( of course.) I know many people are afraid to step in the front door, my child included. I will tell you what I told him, this is not a store, but a treasure hunt. He has enjoyed the hunt ever since! There are so many deals to be had here people, put on your big girl pants and jump in! The other tip I have about this store is don’t see pieces for what they are. “What do you mean?” you may ask. Well, I found this skirt in the extra-large section, it was a size 13/14. I am a size 4 to 8 depending on how many oreo truffles I have eaten, this week I am closer to an 8.  Now without further ado, Let me introduce you to:

Betty

         Yes, I just named this skirt. I named her Betty, because it sounds like an old lady name.

I am pretty sure her original home was in the closet of a 75-year-old women 😉

First of all, I am not a sewer by any means. I made my dad a iPod case last year out of an old leather jacket and sweater, it took me 6 days, and I literally had injuries by the end of it. So, if I can do this Anyone can I just took the skirt and folded little sections about half an inch gatherings at a time on the back, and then sewed them in place. The seasoned sewer would call these pleats, as in old man pants. I didn’t worry about how it looked, because I knew I will be covering it with a junky belt. This picture won’t be winning any contest, but you get the point:

So, that is the three dollar skirt my friends. I love how versatile it is! I can wear it this summer with a tank (white, black, grey, lavender)  and some sassy silver sandals. One of the greatest features about this skirt is it has a frilly layered bottom. The other day I wore it to work with grey boots, and the jacket . Thanks for checking her out! Drop me a message and let me know what you think. God Bless! C
