Second time's the charm.

Do you guys remember this dress I sewed awhile back?

I really didn't like it and never did wear it again, so I decided to turn it into a skirt.
skirt I sewed (self-drafted) worn with leather jacket from Urban Outfitters, Muji shirt and Doc Martens
I re-sewed the four bottom panels and turned it into one that looks a bit like a kilt. I attached a kilt buckle and used a kilt pin which were surprisingly easy to find!

 In progress:
hand-sewing the buckle

The waistband after
I must admit I'm quite happy how this turned out. Definitely will get more wear than the original!

And speaking of second time, I knitted another one of these:)
used the Pussyhat Project pattern
