A simple refashion, from a full length skirt, to v neck top, in 4 easy steps.
A leafy print skirt, purchased for $1 in an op shop last year, has remained in my wardrobe unworn. Its length is not my style. The skirt's side split gave me an idea to transform it into a neckline, so here is, a simple refashion, which could be done without a sewing machine, and requires no cutting and therefore zero waste material.
Put skirt on (if in public, do so over the top of trousers, you'll see why!) and twist around to have the side splits at front and back
Lift entire skirt up, inside out, to your shoulders, and using a safety pin, pin to the point you would like your neckline opening to stop - leaving enough room to get over your head. I used a mirror for this part.
Take off, over your head; you can undo the waist zip (which will be at your side) if you need. Then pin from the end of the each 'arm' to your safety pin marker, and sew a straight line.
Put back on over head, tuck the waistline underneath a little, and you have yourself a brand new top.
Not cutting the original garment means if you ever decided you wanted to wear this top as a skirt again, you'll simply unpick where you've sewn across each shoulder. Easy peasy.
