For this stunning skirt refashion we started with 2 pieces that had great bones, but could use some pick-me-up. We started with a plain denim mini. Plain, but with potential for so much more! Cost $2.50
Next we found a blue polka dot skirt with colors that popped…a few sizes too large. Cost $2.00
That thing is so big, I think we could…hey come here model #2!
Verrrry funny, but a little hard to go out in public like that!
Here’s what we did:
Step 1: Measure bottom of mini.
Step 2: Fold in one section of polka dot skirt until it fits same measurement.
Step 3: Sew together sections of polka dot skirt, cut off excess on inside.
Step 4: Sew top of polka dot skirt inside bottom of mini.
Presenting….oooh la la! We call this our mermaid skirt, with it’s flirty tail.
Total Cost: $4.50
Total Time: Approximately 30 minutes
Talent Level: Beginner Seamstress
Now that’s something she’ll be wearing in public…often!
