I cut up 4 other old skirts (recycle & reuse!!!) into thin strips of very frayed ribbon yarn. I had to have some help since my arthritis doesn't allow me to use a pair of scissors anymore, and I still haven't gotten myself a rotary cutter. So thank you to my good friends Olivia and Benjamin for donating their efforts!! I love you guys!!
Then the fun began! I knit all this up on size 17 needles, using (loosely) a pattern for a tank top in a wave lace pattern. The matching slip dress underneath is sewn, thanks to my friend Polli who patiently sat and helped me with that part!! xoxo
