End of Summer Sewing

Sometimes when I'm not ready to go to bed at night, I wander down to the sewing room with no plan in mind. Last night I made a little free-hand summery top for V.  It's the last bit of a teal colored knit I bought a couple of years ago.

Turned out it's the perfect match for an old shirt in my refashioning pile.

Several rows of shirring were all it needed to become a skirt.

Free and unique.
