Random Skirt!

Well if you have been reading my blog you know the skirt I cut out had to be scrapped due to there being imperfections in the fabric. 

Or so I thought.....

Instead of attaching to the bodice I've made a separate skirt using some reclaimed elastic, bias binding and hook & eye. (I will still be buying more fabric to make the skirt for the 'dress').

I embroidered the skirt and added a pocket to 'cover up' the problem area.

This was all completely improvised so its not the neatest. With the adition of my underskirt to make it stick out I can wear it for retro dance or clog practice.
