inspiration: vintage bowtie skirt
at a thrift store i found a long skirt
and turned it into this: the before/after photo:
i cut the botton of the skirt to the right length and
altered the hips and the thighs part.
and with the bottom part i cut off, i made the bowtie.
cut 2 layers of fabric into a rectangle
sew around the edges, leaving a 2″ opening
using the 2″ opening, flip it to right side out
fold a small fabric and sew one side closed
flip it right side out and fold it in half and sew it closed.
then flip it right side again
pull the big rectangle 1/2 way through the small rectangle
see the little 2″ opening from the bowtie we haven’t closed?
(right side top)
i used liquid stitch to close the seam
the bowtie looks like this
then with a one-side flat safety pin, i sewed it to the back of the bowtie
then safety pin it to the middle of the skirt and there you have a bowtie skirt!
