From baggy bum shorts to refashioned 'Qantas' skirt

Thursday, July 29, 2010

I did it; my first refashioned clothing garment, woooot! I thrifted this material for 50c from my local op shop.


I showed Mr Recycled Fashion aka husband, and he says 'Looks like its from a Qantas airline flight attendant'. He's not far off, I hadnt thought about that:


So I had a pair of denim shorts, with a baggy bum:


Yuck, baggy bum!

I took 'em apart, stitched the 'Qantas' material to the inside gaps, added some leftover doilys from my clutch bag refashion, and here it is


I am very proud of myself considering its my first ever wardrobe refashion...well, a wardrobe refashion that isn't another bag.

That's so awesome! I was looking at a pair of baggy shorts just the other day and wondered how I could make a skirt out of it. This is exactly what I needed to see! Thank you thank you thank you!! (And I love the bags, too! :) )

Well done. Looks great.

That's pretty good. I made a refashioned denim skirt similar to this years ago and it wasn't easy.

Thanks everyone. Thea you're right, it wasnt actually that easy, but I thought that was because I am a novice at sewing :)

If I ever manage to lose some weight I will have several denims with baggy bums to tear apart.
Thanks
