Clothing Diet – a remake

It has been a while since I posted about the clothing diet.(or anything else!) I did continue sewing over the summer and made a skirt from scratch but don’t have a photo. What is more interesting, I think is this top which was a skirt.  Here is the skirt.  It is a white cotton skirt made from panels of different fabrics.  Some panels are embroidered, others pin-tucked or lacy.  It does seem a little stained in the picture but bleach and sunshine did a great job on that.

I wanted to feature the embroidered panels in the top so I cut my pieces from the bottom of the skirt making the scalloped hem the hem of the new top.  There was enough of the pin-tucked section to cut both sleeves from it too.

I made it in summer, photographed it in fall and finally got around to posting just before winter.
