One woman’s scrap is another woman’s skirt

Last week I went to see the WZRDZ at Lucky Bar in Victoria. Their drummer is my baby brother (the student and sometimes model) so my sister and I rocked wizard capes (obviously), but these two wore something just as magical.

Kim and Megan crafted their ensembles from the same vintage dress. They found the original piece at the Patch in Victoria, then shortened it to create a dress and used the leftover pieces to sew a skirt.

My scraps usually get scrapped, but this is sheer genius.

I plan to steal their idea. Isn’t it just brilliant?
