|SO long, and my foot looks
freakishly large here...
I was going to cut the waistband off and use the big rectangle of fabric that would result...but then I thought, no, I wouldn't. Just haven't been able to decide what to do with this one. In any case, I finally took some inspiration from refashioners online, and took out the side pockets of this skirt, stitching the resulting openings down with a narrow hem to make armholes. The waistband becomes collar (though I will have to add a little dart into each shoulder area to make it lay flat correctly, I think), and the skirt becomes dress.
Here I am modelling it with a skinny belt and cardi, and my favourite turquoise owl pendant, also from the Goodwill.
