While in the past I've had little luck the clothing section of charity shops (thrift stores), rarely finding anything in my size, with my new sewing skills at the ready (and constant inspiration courtesy of Marisa at New Dress a Day), there's nothing holding me back - no garment can be too frumpy! At least not in the before shot...
All I had to do to make this skirt wearable was take in the sides a little, take up the hem a lot, and Bob's your uncle.
Isn't it pretty?
