On this skirt remake, I started with a pinstripe American Eagle mini skirt from Salvation army for $4.99,
and a checkered Max brand skirt for $1.25 from Goodwill. The pinstripe skirt had a faded dirty pink ribbon belt that was literally crumbling at the touch. The Max brand skirt was too short (sorry, I didn’t get a picture)
#1. I pinned the checkered skirt to the bottom of the pinstriped skirt.
#2. I sewed the skirts together.
#3. I cut off the top of the Max plaid skirt for later use…it’s got some really cute button and embroidery lines, so keep an eye out for it!
#4. I formed a renewed ribbon belt with vintage buckles. We added Velcro to the back side of the ribbon, so it’s adjustable!
Wow! I love it now! The sober pinstripe pattern looks good paired with the exuberant checkered pattern. I paired this with a flower-patterned shirt.
