Help me…turn this skirt into a top
This skirt is fun, thank you, Markham half-price thrift.
It’s a metallic multicolored brocade knit with a gold embroidered band at the bottom. There’s no slit, there’s just elastic at the waist and the whole thing is just too big for me.
I don’t want to wear it as a skirt. I want to transform this little guy into a top, keeping the bottom band intact and wearing it around my hips. Thought about pulling out the elastic and sewing/cutting appropriately to end up with cap sleeves. Tube top isn’t an option. I don’t like to be naked. And if I have sleeves on, I’ll happily don the over-the-top fabric.
Any suggestions? Any pattern in mind?
