Brown Thrift Store Skirt Refashion – Color Block to Color POP!

On this remake, I started with a brown and white color block skirt from Goodwill for $2.50.

Looking a little tired!

It was very cute and stylish with two pleats in the back and front. Color block skirts are really in now, and so I knew that even though it was tired, I could work with it.  The skirt reminded me of this skirt from Old Navy

or this skirt from Piperlime.

The only problem was that it wasn’t all that eye-catching, kind of boring, actually. I had this cute stash of three-layered lace from St. Vincent that I had been wanting to use, and this was the perfect opportunity.

Here’s what I did:

  1. I sewed the pink lace around the bottom of the skirt.
  2. I sewed two matching pink bows at the top of each of the pleats in the front.

Ta Da!

There! This is a really easy remake to do to spice up a boring skirt! I love the way the ribbon and lace pair to make a cuter and more flirty skirt.

I paired the skirt with a ruffled white button-down blouse and brown pumps. It could also be paired with a casual pink or white tee and sandals or flip-flops for a more casual look.

Worn out no more!
