Scissor Happy Again

It must be all this warm weather but I can seem to stop cutting up clothes at the moment. I have had this denim skirt for years and whilst it is a great fit, I have always felt the length makes me look a bit mumsy. I decided to cut it down for a shorter skirt that I thought would work perfectly for this hot weather. I love refashioning old clothes into something new and have quite a few other clothes lined up for the chop over the next few days.

I am hoping that it will start to fray a bit once I put it through the washing machine so the edge doesn't look quite so clean cut.

Skirt - very old
Lace vest top - ASOS
Black waist coat - Dorothy Perkins (quite a long time ago)
Sandals - Spartoo
Celtic necklace - pressy from my sister
Bangle - pressy from Mr Style Eyes

That's so 80s, cutting a skirt at the bottom and letting it fray. I love it!

I can't resist chopping up denim, it always looks so much better!

I get scissor happy myself every once and a while, but I have to say my projects hardly come out as cute as that skirt. Love it!

There are so many things in my wardrobe I need to get round to customising. But summer is the perfect time to do it so I shall have to find the time.
I love what you've done with the skirt and better it will look even more fab frayed.
