For today’s skirt refashion, I started with this Lauren Jeans Co. Size 10, 22-inch long skirt. We picked it up at Goodwill for $2.50, knowing that a Lauren Jeans Co. denim skirt was a great buy for $2.50 and this one was is great shape.
It was a nice plain skirt, kind of blah, a little outdated, and as I didn’t want to add on new fabric, or take off some of the length, I started thinking about embellishing it. I picked out some non-gathered lace from our lace box and laid it out in patterns until I got the pattern that I wanted.
Step by Step Lauren Jeans Co. Denim Skirt Refashion Instructions
1. Sewed a piece of lace on either side of the slit.
2. Sewed a brown ribbon onto the top of the piece of lace.
3. Repeated steps 1 and 2 three more times.
4. Sewed a pink bow onto the top layer of ribbon.
I really like how this turned out!
Here you can see how the back has no lace on it, but I was using scraps of lace, and I didn’t have enough lace to go around the back, so the lace and ribbon are just on the front. This produces a sort of cool, split-personality effect! It’s a different skirt coming and going! But then again, a bunch of lace on the back might have been uncomfortable to sit on…or would it have produced a completed look? Hmmm, I might have to find another skirt like this and do an experiment!
This is definitely a warm-weather skirt, so you’ll have to excuse my cold-weather outfit and hunched-up expression. Hey, when it’s negative degrees outside, I just wanna get back inside! I paired this skirt with a navy blue tee under my brown-pocketed jacket, and wore white tights and my favorite brown boots.
Since this skirt is a bit too large and a bit too short for me we are selling this skirt on Etsy here. I sewed the lace on so that it lifts up on the bottom and is only attached on the top, and I think that it is a really cute look overall. I had a lot of fun with this skirt, so I hope that maybe I can do another remake like this sometime soon. Lemme know what you think of my newest skirt remake!
Always be Exciting,
