Thrift stores in these parts are plagued with these long, flowy hippie skirts. Since I'm not partial to Birkenstocks and patchouli I usually just pass them by. The last time I was out thrifting I broke down and bought a couple because I liked the ethnic print fabric. They've been sitting on my sewing table for weeks just collecting dust because I wasn't sure what to do with them. Well, yesterday I got on a sewing binge (I had to stop because I ran out of thread) and this long skirt was turned into two mini skirts. When it comes to sewing projects it doesn't get much more basic than this. Cut and hem. That's about it. Maybe I'll keep one for myself and put the other one up in the store.
