I’m now working on my first upcycling project using a silk skirt from my grandmother. She was really skinny so I have to shorten the skirt to broaden the waistline.
I am going to try and make a ruffled gathered top out of a silk chiffon to match but for now I found this old shirt in my closet.
So far, I’ve been hand sewing the chiffon as it helps avoid pulls in the fabric. I’m making a front panel and a back panel that I’ll join at the sides and gather at the neckline.
