Here I am. It's D.I. Devise time right?
So...I'm going to wait with pure love in my heart and patience in my soul to see if anyone links up. That's what I'm going to do. Truly.

But until then, let's see what I devised shall we?
It's a skirt...

the length of the Eiffel Tower...and cost me $3.

And it may have survived the 70's and maybe even Pioneer time. I'm not sure.
But it IS handmade. I cut off the top row of lace and off came the strap ties as well.

I now resewed the top a pretty little hem. (This skirt is two layers, so i had to keep and sew the under layer with it as well so that the lace wasn't see through. You see, I'm a modest gal).

Here's the silky under layer...quite comfy.
And I ended up adding stretch elastic to the back side hem so that it fit snug up top like a tube top.

And here, my friends, is the Skirt to Dress...

And of coarse added a cardigan, because...like I said. I'm a modest gal.
If you missed it, here's DI devise PART ONE and PART TWO. I'm kind of hoping a little bit that you've followed along so far :)

This, this is where I hand over my life and put it in your hands. Have you revised something thrifted?
You can grab a DEVISE button in the side bar :o)

I admit I follow you and I am totally jealous of your great crafty skills. I need to get to the DI more often and get brave with my lame sewing skills. You are so cute! Hopefully when my baby comes home I'll have more time to make mommy crafts instead of baby crafts. You inspire me!
