Upcycling Some Clothes

Every time we go away, I become determined to post here while we’re there. I even upload pictures so everything is ready to go. But the beach…it’s easier to do nothing there.

So here we go on catch-up!

Sent this off to my niece before we left. The tank top is one that my sisters and I wore in high school – I think at one point, we each had one. Unfortunately, none of us are high school size any more.

I cut the straps on the tank to make ties and cut the sides and bottom down to Gator-size.

The skirt was originally a shirt from Old Navy, and such high quality that it ripped the first time I wore it. I sliced it off right below the holes and stitched it right to the bottom of the tank. No hemming!!

It’s a little too big, but hey, at least it’s at my sister’s house now and not at mine. Anything that moves fabric out of my piles is good!
