Erica Louise’s NDAD Creation

Nov 18, 2012 | 30 Comments

Hey friends!  I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend!  I spent the day road-tripping back from Phoenix after an amazing weekend, meeting lots of readers, scouring some Goodwill racks, and catching up with college friends!  Full rundown comes this week!

This piece was sent my way by Erica Louise!  Since the weather has been all over the place on the West Coast and in chill mode on the East Coast, this garment is one that we can all make and use right now!

I purchased a second-hand tweed skirt from an op shop for $8…

It’s refashion time!!

Unfortunately I didn’t have enough tweed fabric to complete an entire cape (oh no!), so I had to use a contrasting fabric for the back of it!

I LOVE this Erica Louise!!  I’m totally going to try my hand at this with an old, vintage, wool skirt in my collection.  Such a perfect way to reuse a piece from your closet in a brand new way!!  Looking forward to the next piece EL!!
