A hearty Happy New Year & zum neuen Jahr Gesundheit, Glück und viel Erfolg to all!
Are ya diggin’ my fabulously swing-y skirt for Silvester? (New Year’s Eve in Germany)
Create your own in a flash with a few bits from the bottom of your stash…
grab that just-doesn’t-fit-right peplum top that’s been lurking in your stash
turn it inside out and chop straight through under the arms
*and here’s my latest groovtastically simple-and-oh-comfy waistband trick:
snag a tot t-shirt a bit smaller than the width of your waist & slice it under the arms
fold the bottom bit over itself with right-sides-facing
stitch the open edges together and your awesome new waistband is complete!
Pop it over the chopped bottom of the peplum with right-sides-facing and raw edges lined up & stitch together
zig zag over the outside seam for extra strength
and your superbly swing-y skirt is done!
Add some sparkle with a vintage sequined top + shimmery quirky fox ears, slip on your dancing shoes & celebrate in style!
