IN”TRICATE, a. [L. intricatus, from intrico, to fold; in and tricor.] Entangled, involved; perplexed; complicated; obscure. (1824)
Remember this, from 2 years ago? The stretch cotton has a lot of body & I love those pockets, but the culottes didn’t get worn last summer, the Summer of Dresses. The fabric hadn’t faded. They were too good to bin. What to do?
Taking a good look, I remembered how unflattering I’d felt they looked, but they hadn’t been uncomfortable to wear. I decided to do some chopping and try the fabric as a skirt instead.
Haven’t had time to wear the skirt. Yet. One reuse project done. 🙂
Meanwhile, 2 RTW (ready to wear) dresses also hadn’t been worn in several years; their slinky knit-type fabrics seem indestructible. What to do?
The bodices were the uncomfortable bits, in summer humidity. Those got slashed and binned. Presto! A couple more skirts.
No, I wasn’t about to try ripping out those factory stitches to make side seam pockets from the tops. Ripping the culotte/skirt hem took long enough.
Will this summer be a summer of dresses and skirts?
(Note to self’s Never-Ending List: make tops to go with skirts?)
