Happy New Year to everyone!! I am not the type of person that makes New Year resolutions. When I was in college, I would make a game of making the resolutions only to see how long it took to break them. Yes, I may be an inherently lazy person.
Despite my unexpected bout of a cold on New Year’s Eve, I did try my hardest to make a cool skirt for the parties that I was unable to attend. Long ago, my mother gave me a sequined dress that she had only worn once. Explaining the reason for this dress would require another much longer post.
I have never, ever, ever, ever worn this dress (other than as a joke for a moment). I’m not 100% sure that this dress was intended to be worn by a women over the age of 18. So I decided to get crafty and alter the dress into something more wearable like this.
I measured to see where I wanted the skirt to fall. Using some left-over elastic from the wedding garters, I folded the fabric over to make a waistband and sewed the fabric into a hole where the elastic was inserted. After the elastic was in place, I cut the excess sequin fabric (Tip: Do this over a trash can because sequins will go everywhere) and I was done. Sadly, this skirt will have to wait for another party.
