I made this pretty green velvet pinafore this morning from a long vintage skirt. The skirt was actually pretty lovely long - but I was never going to wear it in its ankle-length state. So I decided to turn it into a pinafore. It already had a waistband, so it was just a matter of chopping it short and using the bottom part to make straps! I think I might still make some pockets to go on it (like this) - I'll post another photo if I do!
Unfortunately... I only took one photo of the skirt while it was long and didn't realise how grumpy I look in it until now. Oops. So... I guess you'll have to put up with my grumpy face. It kind of works in favour of the the before/after scenario, anyway.
This is how I sliced the skirt up to make it into a pinafore, in case you were wondering :)
