    Upcycling idea: How to make a summer skirt from a dress

    In today’s upcycling DIY post I’m going to show you how to make something new from something old – in less than thirty minutes. I’ll explain how you can turn a dress into a super comfy skirt and even change it’s look with the help of small details.

I earned considerably more money some time ago until it became clear to me that I value time over money.*** That said, I don’t have a huge income, I actually make less than most of the people I know. Nevertheless I can afford fair fashion – mostly because I choose to. It has taken me some time and adjustments but it hasn’t been a huge problem. It just takes some more preparation.
