The actual refashion was really simple. First, I made a mini skirt by unpicking the crotch seam, cutting off the legs, overlapping the crotch seam and hand-sewing it as flat and as neat as possible on front and back.
The back was a little pointy because the crotch seam was longer, but I figured I don’t mind some extra length to cover my butt. Which is really silly because the entire skirt was still rather short and 2in weren't going to make a difference but that was my excuse and that was that.
All in all I was quite happy with how it all turned out. Alas, I have added a few inches to my waist since 2009 and the skirt no longer fits. Not even close :(. But I just can’t bring myself to give away my 1st refashion. So I tell myself that one day I will lose enough weight to honor Cedella Marley once more.
