I cut the blouse beyond the elastic (turned upside down) and cut panels from the outer fabric of the shorts to sew onto the sides to drape the shimmery fabric. A lot of pinning and minimal sewing later.
I sewed the hem closely to the edge to retain the longer length of the skirt using the fabric I had. Shimmery cheetah print over zebra and giraffe monochrome. I think the £1 rail refashions are my favourite as they start off quite limited in style so it's more of a challenge to make wearable. Unwanted clothes from charity shops tend to be sold off for £1 a large bag as loose fabric but it's no guarantee it won't end up in landfill. Indeed, some highstreet shops have been deemed unethical for throwing their unsold items straight to refuse, learning to sew recovers resources.
