Floral top now skirt!

I do love a good floral pattern.  So even though I had no clue as to what to make with it, I just knew that it would have to come home with me.

I turned it around and around trying to figure out how to make it into a smaller top, but it had unusual 'wings' attached over the armhole so I left it until inspiration decided to make itself known.

Then one day I was looking at it again.  It was an oversize top so there was a lot of fabric there and that neck looked as though I could put it around my waist...

So I tried it on as a skirt and despite the wriggling involved and flappy wings it actually looked like a skirt!

The neck wasn't quite large enough to make a waistband so I made a cut straight across the bottom of the neck.  Then sewed up the sides.

And voila, another skirt was born!!
