Winter florals

Here lies another case of my “ooh, what a cute skirt!” problem. I loved the colors and pattern, and it looked like the right size. I brought it home and tried it on, and didn’t love the fit. And then it sat for a while. When I came across it again, I saw its potential as a cute wintery floral purse!

As you may have noticed, I’ve been on a skirt to purse kick recently. It’s such a simple method of refashioning as long as you use a skirt in a smaller size and a decent shape. Heck, even if you have to edit the shape a bit, it’s still super easy! So easy, in fact, that I took exactly zero pictures during my work. Let’s just skip right on to the good stuff, then.

Now, the only thing that maybe bugs me about keeping the skirt fully intact is that there are some raw strap ends on the inside. However, I made sure to sew them very securely, and I think the color blends in with the lining enough that it’s not too noticeable.

 

What do you think? Love the colors for winter?
