I picked this vintage granny skirt up from the market for 50 pence cause I fell in love with the colours of the rather fabulous boucle fabric & I also thought that I might be able to make a cape out of it.

I was draping it over my dressmakers dummy today but it just didn’t look right as a cape, it just didn’t hang right, I was just about to give up when a thought came to me…I could make a very simple dress out of this with minimum effort!

So out came the seam unpicker, I made two armholes by removing the zipper on one side & unpicking the seam of the other side & then simply handstitching around the edges to make them look neat…voila, reconstructed granny skirt becomes a sweet boatneck DIY mini dress!

You can usually find these type skirts in abundance at the charity shops for next to nothing, this one is by Gor-ray…it had zipper & button fastening one side & it has kick-pleats both to the front & back.
