Leather Skirt to Leather Cuff Refashion
This leather skirt set me back $3 at the thrift.
I didn’t purchase it to wear, but then I tried it on for fun and I kind of fell in love with its awesome high waist and beautiful not-quite-red-not-quite-orange color. For a wee split second I thought of keeping it, but then the reality set in that I didn’t have anywhere in the world to wear a 10-pound high-waisted honky tonkin’ 70’s flashback leather skirt. Alas.
So I cut in to it. And the pain only lasted for a second.
Because before I knew it, I had a couple of these bad boys.
A much more practical use of the beautiful material, if I do say so.
This is the accessory piece I made for our D.I.Y. Louisville accessory swap. I used the tutorial found on Oh The Lovely Things HERE. (Which *is* a lovely blog, and totally worth your clicks.)
