On this skirt remake, I started with a ‘Mossimo Supply Co.’ skirt in brown, tan, and white.
There were two big pockets, which I totally LOVED, but they kind of got lost in the skirt and the decorative ties for the pockets were major BLAH!!! The ties were made of some kind of cloth fabricky stuff, and they were a kind of military olive greenish color.
I dig military on some skirts, but this feminine skirt was totally made to go a different way. I got this skirt for $2.00
Here are my steps.
Step 1. I ironed the skirt and sewed a flowered vintage cream lace around the bottom.
Step 2. I took out the gross military ties from the pockets and sewed in some pretty satin ribbon in a brown that matched the skirt color.
Step 3. I edged the pockets in a thin frilly white and pale yellow lace.
Oooooh!!! Look at it now! The pockets totally stand out with the ribbon ties and the lace edging. The lace around the bottom helps it to not look so worn out now too!!!
For the after photos, I paired this with a dark brown ‘Candies’ blouse, a vintage cream sweater, leather ‘Land’s End’ slouch boots, brown tights, and a vintage leather handbag!
Total Cost: $4.00 (The ribbon cost $2)
Total Time: 30 minutes

How cute is this now?!?! I mean, the perfect fall outfit, right? In case you can’t live without this skirt, we have decided to put it up on Etsy here.
