We’ve been hearing some rumblings about refashioning so many skirts in extra small sizes! Well, we like to work with the models we have, but we want to keep our readers happy too, so today’s refashion is a little larger size. We started with a Cato women’s skirt (it’s size 20W) that we picked up from our friend Shelly’s Boutique. We got it for that amazing price of $2.64!
Next we found this brown dotted dress at Goodwill.
It was missing a button or two on the top, fit none of us, and was a little shabby in itself, but for $2, we knew we could use it. The dots are raised and really add some fun texture.
Here were our steps:
Step 1: Cut off bottom tier of brown dress.
Step 2: Pin and sew brown tier to lining of Cato women’s skirt.
That was it! Isn’t refashioning skirts so fun, fast and easy? We love the look, it reminds of a Chevron pattern, but looser and more fun! Be aware that the model is holding the skirt pinched in the back, it is still a size 20W. By attaching the brown ruffle tier to the lining, we achieved a look so professional and adorable!
Total Time: 15 minutes
Total Cost: $4.64
Talent Level: Beginner. (I mean really, if you’ve been waiting for an easy one to try, this is it! Your wait is over!)
