This top used to be a dress, but it was a bit … ahem … clingy around the hips.
I still love the pattern, so rather than donate the dress, I decided to make it into a top. Unfortunately I’m not a seamstress, so I took it to a dressmaker to do a professional job. It cost 20 Swiss Francs to alter.
The material is a very soft jersey, so when she gave me the leftovers, I wondered what I could do? Easy!
I cut the leftovers into small squares for reusable tissues!
No more one-use tissues beside the bed now. I have six lovely, bright, soft noseblowers. I’ve rolled them up and store them (the clean ones!) in a jar.
I didn’t even need to hem them.
They get washed with the towels each week.
Happiness is … making use of what we have to replace something we don’t need.
Wishing you a wonderful waste-free day.
