Today Aria tried her hand at her first refashion! We are so excited to have her join the sewing team here at Skirt Fixation! Now she’s sewn up some pretty nice reusable shopping bags in the past, and even sold (and is preparing to sell some more) on Etsy, but until today, she didn’t feel ready to try a skirt refashion. We think she did awesome with her Land’s End skirt refashion! Here’s what she has to say:
I just love today’s refashion. It is so cute and spring/summery but I’m a little sad since I’ll have to wait until spring to start wearing it. It was also very easy.
I started out with a Girls Land’s End pink floral skirt we found at Goodwill for $1.25. We love Land’s end skirts because they are extremely good quality and last long, (and are cute!). I thought about putting several layers on the bottom of the skirt, and that would have been cute but I like what I decided to do better.
Step 1: I used some medium light pink lace and pinned a circle around the hem of the skirt.
Step 2: I sewed the lace.
Step 3: I pinned the lace on the diagonal layers. This was made extra easy because there were already lines.
Step 4: I sewed the diagonal lace, and clipped all loose strings!
Total Cost: $1.25
Talent Level: Beginner Seamstress
Well, I think every girl should try to play around with her clothes! This was so easy and gave the skirt a new, updated look! I can’t wait to start wearing this one!
