Have you ever seen sarong skirts?
I've had a couple in my wardrobe for several years but I have to admit I have never worn them.
I don't find them very flattering - plus they are a little tricky to tie on, and not easy if you need to visit the toilet!
Here's my long pair, they are basically a front and back panel joined under the legs:
You tie the front panel behind your back. lift the back panel through your legs to the back..
Then tie it at the front!
So having decided to have a good sort and clear of my wardrobe, I thought I'd better try to do something with these so that I would actually wear them!
My initial thought was to just join up the sides..
make them a bit narrower, shorten the body a little,
and use the ties to fasten at the sides.
I still don't like the look of them. Having ties at both sides makes my hips look quite wide - not very flattering (oops - didn't think of that!).
I think I need to rethink these - maybe I need to just add elastic to the waistband......
I also have a shorter sarong skirt - which I decided to just cut and make into a simple beach wrap:
First I cut the centre (between the legs bit) out..
This left me with two separate panels.
Much better! Now I will actually wear this - and it's very easy to tie and wear!
Do you have any clothes in your wardrobe that you have NEVER worn? How could you alter or upcycle them to get some use out of them?
