The UGLIEST skirt ever - Transformed

I woke up this morning and thought, “Ugh, tomorrow is Sunday. If I make it to church that means… I have to wear something. My least favorite thing about church. I haven’t had church clothes that I like since… well, I don’t remember. Plus, my my very tall but skeletal body is such a pain to dress. I’ve never had a bum. Or thighs. I’ve always shopped in the guy’s section for pants and for shirts with long enough sleeves. That doesn’t help my church clothes situation.

A couple of years ago I was desperate for something to wear on Sunday, so I found a couple of skirts for a good price at Penney’s and bought two cute blouses to go with them. Both blouses are nice enough that I wore the skirts, in spite of them making me look more skeletal. Every time I’d use the ladies room I’d face that horror of a full length mirror while washing my hands, then walking out. Ugh - no bum or thighs and I looked ridiculous in skirts that really are meant for women who have both!

So after my waking thought about Sunday and clothes, I went to my closet, got out the skirts and immediately began dissecting them with my eyes. I will now just focus on my black skirt - the ugliest one! I have always hated the full skirt shape and detested the fabric flowers that went around the hem. Just SO SUPER UGLY! There is no fashion involved in this skirt. After a few minutes of trying the skirt on, inside out, playing with pins and chalk, and thinking what I love right now that’s in style, I knew what I wanted to do!

After a few minutes with my scissors and sewing maching - the ugly skirt has been transformed - it’s now fitting on my very slim, no curves body, and doesn’t have that ugly, no style full hem! I even kept some fabric flowers since they look great on this new look!
