25 Days to Go: Rachel's NDAD Creation

Today's remake comes from Rachel!!

First, I want to say that I LOVE your blog!  It is always exciting to see what new thing you have recreated.  Following your blog has given me the courage to try my hand at re-fashioning some clothing myself.  This one is my favorite!  A few weeks ago, I bought this interesting pair of shorts (which happen to be quite long) at an estate sale.  I paid 50 cents for the shorts, what a steal!  I loved the floral print and the awesome belt...

...but I wasn't going to wear these shorts as is.

I'm not a shorts wearer myself, so I'm totally curious to see what Rachel does!!

I cut the fabric right where the two legs met...

Using my vintage Singer, I sewed straight lines on either side...

I love my new skirt! It totally looks like I paid more than two shiny quarters for it!"

Yes it does!  Go shorty, it's your birthday...totally in honor of the Fitty Cent you paid :)  Now these are a pair of shorts I'd wear!!
