So a few days ago I was on the Forever 21 site, browsing around. They had this “buy one get one free” section and it was just unbelievably cheap. I added two shorts to my shopping cart, and the the total amount was $10 plus $4 shipping. For two pairs of shorts! I sat on it for a little bit and at the end, I closed my browser without purchasing anything. The fact that they were so cheap kind of turned me of, and I didn’t really want or need new pairs of cheap shorts anyway. I just felt like I did not need to clutter my closet with more things, that can be thrown away after a few wares.
Instead, I went to my closet and pulled out this old skirt. It was a hand-me-down from when I was in elementry school. I don’t remember ever wearing it, since it is a weird length skirt for an elementary school kid (midi length). Now I took a second look at the skirt I liked the grandma-ish floral print. I shortened the skirt (will show you the result in a different post) and with the left over fabric, I made this bustier. I added a built-in bra cup, so I can wear it without a bra. I modified the same pattern I drafted for this bustier and this bustier.
