Let's just say that I'm obsessed with these colors!
The sashes were my fave!
But these pads...
I felt like a vintage clown. We have the same ruffled collar :)
Time to get to work!!
I began this journey by doing a little bit of cutting. I trimmed off the collar and shoulders...
...and the pads!! So long fair shoulder pads. It's been real.
I pinned the sides of the piece closed (at the arms)...
...and then folded under the raw edges, because this bad boy is turning into a skirt!!!
I sewed it and...
...turned this vintage top into a brand new skirt!!
The brilliant part was that those long sashes were turned into my new belt of sorts! I used them to close the skirt which essentially is my new, built in, sashy, belt!
I couldn't be happier with how this turned out! Weeeeee!!!
This would be perfect over a bathing suit too!!
So many options!! Just. So. Many!
