I had a once much loved linen wrap skirt that I hadn’t worn for years. It was faded on the outside & in any case was difficult to cycle in – wrap skirts tend to fly open when cycling.
I decided to turn it into a blouse for every day wear & turned to Vogue 2634(adapted). I’ve made this pattern up at least half a dozen times in various guises.
I needed to use the hem of the skirt to get the length but had to use the inside to avoid too faded a look. This led me to the leftovers from a not very successful linen dress – made about 15 years ago – I used it for flowery strips to cover the hem edge & then cut bias strips for the armholes & collar trim.
There’s hardly anything left from the skirt now & I’ve got a blouse to wear over jeans or jodphurs for everyday wear.
