Lucky me! I got to go away to Mexico at Christmas! Of course, a trip means new clothes! I wanted a skirt, but the summer fabrics are all gone from Canadian stores. So, I bought this top at a discount store. It already had the elastic at the bottom, so I thought, I can flip that to be the top. And away I went!
First, I cut off the bodice at the armholes. Then I separated the ruffle from the neckline and cut away the sleeves.
Finally, there are 4 godets inserted.
I wanted to use up all the fabric, so the neck ruffles were separated into 2 and I sewed one down each side seam. The original seam was crooked anyway, so I cut it open and inserted the ruffle.
