Up from the scraps of a ruined coat it rose and took shape and formed... a skirt!
Here is the frumpy old coat I bought at "The Bins" and how I turned it into a skirt and a bag. And they turned out quite nice at that. It was the exact fabric I've been looking for, and I figured this way my skirt was half sewn for me already. Here's the inspiration skirt I fell in love with months ago.
It reminds me of "Joseph had a Little Overcoat" a Jewish tale about Joseph who had an old worn-out overcoat. First he cut off the bottom and turned it into a jacket. Then the jacket got worn out so he turned it into a vest. Then the vest got old and tattered so he turned it into a scarf. When the scarf got old he turned it into a handkerchief. And when at last the handkerchief was no longer usable, he made that into a button. One day he lost the button. And he was so sad that he wrote a song about it. Which just goes to show you, you really can make something out of nothing!
