I just found a Chanel skirt at the local thrift shop!!!! (frenchies rocks) It's a little too big but once I get the nerve I'm going to start to take it apart and see if I can take it in on the side seams. Not bad for $3. (My husband was like... whatever, men, can't live with them, can't shoot 'em :bluewink: )

At $3, you might just gather up all the nerve you need in a jiffy! That's a nice buy! :up:

Good deal!! I'm sure you'll do fine in reconstructing it!
