I’m not sure about you, but I have a stash of handmade garments that I just can’t seem to get rid of. Even though they haven’t been worn for years, some things just never get culled. This skirt is made from one of these items.
I made the dress below back in 2011. It was one of the first garments that I was really proud of. This was back in the day when I didn’t know much about fabric or sewing.
Despite the fact that this dress is made with quilting cotton, I still love it. Maybe it was because my sister gave me the fabric.
Anyway, I’m glad I kept it, because I have now made it into a very wearable skirt for school. I think I’ve worn this at least once every week this year.
So the moral of the story is: Never throw out anything. You will use it again one day (What does Marie Condo know?)
