There's nothing like donations from other people when getting to make a project. I've loved receiving all your vintage garments to upcycle and this piece from Bish is one that she made with a friend's relinquished project. So one of my friends picked up crochet while I was pregnant and took on the ambitious project of making me a baby blanket. As she worked on it, she noticed it started getting narrower and narrower with each line, until it was more of a triangle than a blanket and she had to abandon ship so to say. She still gave me her progress, thinking I could use it as a burp cloth or something, but I immediately saw an alternate potential.
How will Bish transform this piece???
Of course it took me months to get to it, but I finally decided to turn that failed project into a cute baby skirt! I originally thought I needed one button for the skirt, so when I went to grab one from my sewing box and found 3 that matched, I couldn't decide which one to use and ended up using all of them!
I sewed a piece of looped elastic to a button and then sewed that onto one side of the narrower part of the material. I sewed two buttons on the other side next so I would have some size options.
Insta-cute skirt! Of course getting her to stand still long enough to snap a good picture wasn't nearly as easy.
This is totally adorbs, Bish! Your little gal couldn't be sweeter. I love that you thought practical too when adding the additional buttons - the little lady will be able to grow and the skirt will still be wearable!
