Now this woman is ‘repurposing’ purposely. See her blog, Consumption Rebellion, for outline of how she re-used materials that went into making this outfit for her little girl.
excerpt from her blog – how to:
The skirt was constructed as follows:
– waistband – cut from my Great Aunt’s pair of denim capris.
– circle skirt (and its really a circle this time!) – from fabric offcut at an op shop – cost $1
– lining – made from an old bedsheet found at an op shop – cost 50c.
– Top – cut from the leg of my Great Aunt’s capris and turned upside down so the tapered end went towards the neck and the wider end towards the waist.
