From Skirt to Top

by Rachel Baker on July 16, 2014

This is an awesome idea and one that I think I may be able to pull off pretty easily!

At the Fashion Revolution Day event in Singapore, we had a clothes swap run by the lovely Donna from TOPSWOP. Three items caught my eye, but the prettiest was this short skirt. I just fell in love with the print!

Unfortunately, it was a size 18 but I decided to convert it into a tube top using the good old elastic band.

I unpicked the seam on the side and inserted elastic band measuring 2 inches shorter than the circumference of my chest.

I then decided to add some buttons to the middle top part of the band. I think I was trying to channel Marion Coutillard, but I only had a few buttons to play with. This is what Marion wore at the recent Cannes Film Festival.
