I found myself with a Saturday at home and ended up making a skirt.
I'm really happy with how it turned out, though I didn't know from the beginning how it would end.
I started with an XS wool dress my sister gave me. At one point, I squeezed into it and decided it could only be worn if made into a skirt - a high waisted skirt.
I cut off the skirt portion and marked where my waist would be for it to fit correctly across my hips.
I cut off the extra portion to use as some kind of waistband and realized it would look great if the skirt came up to my waist and the waistband extended up even higher. It would need to flare out to accommodate my ribs, and I realized the part I cut off for a waistband would be perfect if it was flipped upside down.
Like so (above)
I added two small darts to the front and four large darts to the back to get a nice fit.
I haven't officially hemmed the skirt because the dress was finished with only a serged edge...and if I hem this now - it will be too short :(
It looks basically fine as it is.
I did line the skirt and waistband with lining from the dress.
