When I got this top I wasn’t sure if I should return it. I tried it on several times but was not fully convinced. As so many other unworn clothing, it got lost in the back of my closet – haha. That was until I updated an old pencil skirt.
I’ve had the pencil skirt for many years and the zip broke. This is when I decided to update it with a new zip – but instead of the usual zip, I opted for a long exposed red zip all the way down the back. The look is a bit more dramatic.
I took the opportunity of changing the waistband at the same time because it always felt a bit uncomfortable. I sewed a wide elastic band onto the skirt and discarded the original band. Volià! I have a new skirt which fits beautifully with my red Self-portrait top.
Updating an old garment can be just as satisfying as buying a new one, so instead of throwing out old clothes, get creative and update them.
