In my pursuit of repurposing good pieces, I made another scarf from two very dear pieces.
The skirt is a rich burgundy corduroy with lovely ruffles that made the skirt for what it was - a cutie! Eva got it as a gift, but the elastic at the waist was so tight there was no way for her to wear it. I knew that if I tried to change and insert new elastic I would ruin it since it was with one of those set-in elastics that can be removed along with a big part of the fabric. So it stayed put for many, many years.
As for the woolen scarf - I have had it since uni. Needless to mention that it so dear to my heart I was set to keep it until doomsday. But, it started to show the tooth of time and before it got any holes I decided to save it and hence the match. It is as good as if made in heaven.
Luckily i didn't have to cut away the flowery ruffle and use the whole front part of the skirt without chipping at it (the skirt was slightly circular) and I needed to add / patch just a small part to use the entire length of the woolen scarf.
And this is not all. I have some other refashioned pieces coming along nicely and in due time.
