Sarong Recycling, Take Three.


One hour project for a weekday morning! And really, most of that work time was just devoted to ironing the thing out and measuring it. I decided I needed more skirts, so that’s what this second elephant sarong became. As simple as cutting it in half length-wise and adding elastic to the waist. Well, the bottom hemming did get a bit tricky. One half of the skirt used the natural hem, but I had to fiddle with the other half because it was cut in mid-pattern and thus the hem looked messy and incomplete. So I covered it up with a strip of simpler pattern, which gave it a more finished look and also added some weight to the bottom of the skirt. It is very light cotton so wearing it anywhere windy might be asking for trouble!
