For this fantastic skirt fix, we started with 2 pieces that had a lot of potential, but didn’t work on their own. First off, there was the American Eagle green mini skirt. It was in great shape except for the hem, which had seen better days. We paid $2.50 for it.
The next item we chose was a fun, bright skirt. The greens in the skirt were the same exact color as the green mini. The problem? A few sizes too large! We paid $2.50.
So here’s what we did:
Step 1: Detach bottom 1/2 of pockets from green mini.
Step 2: Remove ragged hem portion from green mini.
Step 3: Measure bottom width of remaining top piece of green mini.
Step 4: Find same measurement across width of blue floral skirt.
Step 5: Trim off top of blue floral skirt.
Step 6: Sew top of green mini and bottom of blue floral skirts together.
Step 7: Reattach bottom 1/2 of pockets to blue floral skirt.
