Just when I thought the mercury was rising enough for me to wear tank tops and shorts, the cold wind blasted me back to reality this morning. It was 5 Celsius this morning with strong wind. There is a frost warning for tonight. Seriously?
Well, it didn't dampen my mood. I was determined to make some summery garments. I thrifted this warm sunny yellow cotton eyelet skirt last year for $6.99. It was very big on me but it was about the only shade of yellow that looked semi-flattering on me.
I took off the lining (yes the same shade of yellow cotton voile lining - another top perhaps?) and the zipper and traced my self-drafted woven tank pattern on the skirt. I have previously used the pattern for this refashioned top. The yellow skirt was just a little short on the material so the top is a bit tighter than the other one. But I'm pleased that I now have a yellow eyelet top to wear this summer:
Another quick and easy refashion project! Can't wait to wear it when it's warmer!
