Fabric-wise it was love at first sight, a funky twill weave cotton with bias stripes of a tabby weave with a thread end fringe.

At second look it was a sad no waist band, loooong gored skirt about 5 sizes (if you can believe mfg sizing) too big. IMHO a fabulous fabric worked up in a poor design, surely I could do something about that right? So I bought it for a $1.98.

Such a simple fix.  I removed one full gore from each side, sewed the right side seam up leaving a proper armhole length open and added a side zipper on the left side.The next step was to sew on the bias tape and tack the top of the armhole at the shoulder creating a boat neck.

Done. Easy. I love it.
