I bought these large black corduroy pants and turned it into a skirt. However, I wasn't satisfied with the end result so it sat in my closet for awhile. I rediscovered it and saw the potential it had, the potential that the sewing n00b that I was a few years back didn't quite catch.
Me, wearing the skirt before I did any changes. Notice how awkward and shapeless it looks.
Then, I decided on how tight I wanted it to hug my hips. I also cut it shorter in length.
After pinning, sewing, and eventually trimming off the excess, I made a template of the bones I wanted to paint onto the skirt:
I added several layers of paint before I was satisfied.
Test run time!
Ever since I finished this skirt, I've worn it several times. I love it! As pictured in these photos, I love to pair it with button-down shirts and tights.
