On this remake, I started with a black skirt that had beautiful blue flowers embroidered on it that had a lot of potential, but was an uncomfortable length and didn’t stand out. We found it at Goodwill for $2.50.
I wanted a more formal skirt look for this one, and a floor length, so I picked out a white tiered skirt and tried to match it to the bottom of the black skirt. We scored it at Salvation Army for $2.
It didn’t work by itself, so we went to a fabric store and bought some satiny fabric in the exact color of the flowers.
#1. I trimmed and hemmed the blue fabric and pinned it on the bottom of the black skirt.
#2. I cut off the bottom tier of the white skirt and pinned it to the bottom of the blue layer.
#3. I sewed the blue layer to the black skirt, and the white layer to the blue layer.
Now it looks a lot more pretty! This turned out to be a beautiful formal skirt that would be perfect to wear on a special occasion.

I wore it with a short-sleeve ruffled blue blouse, but I would wear it with a button-down and heels or flats for a more formal occasion. We have listed this skirt on Etsy Here.
