I happened to stumble upon a blog on Pinterest that is al about refashioning so I had a refashioning inspiration!
Her blog is refashionista.net check it out if you haven’t already!
So we already know I like refashioning items like:
- This Color Block Tank Top
- Or this dress made from two shirts
- Or this t-shirt upsize
- Or these patriotic shorts from pants
- Or this patriotic shirt from a plain white tee
So I am no stranger to refashion but I wanted to try to take it up a notch so I dug through the bag I had set aside for goodwill. In that bag I found a dress I had wore to homecoming in high school.
I decided it would be a perfect skirt for going out on the weekends! So I laid it flat and cut it just below the zipper.
There was a lot of the lining fabric so I slimmed that up by removing one panel of it.
I grabbed the elastic that I measured to my waist and pinned the outer lacey layer in place, adding pleats so it would have a nice flow.
I then pinned the lining layer in place as well.
I sewed it all together and voila a super cute skirt for going out!
Now I couldn’t just stop there see I had this dress, and well it was getting to be too short and I discovered a lot of little holes in it too so it was time for a revamp.
I kept it super simple, I just seam ripped the top portion from the bottom and now have a tribal skirt. :]
Two skirts from two dresses, yay for a new free wardrobe! I also cut up two too small dresses into a nice flowy tops.
And I died a shirt that the original color was just meh :/
So I think that is about it for now ;)
Stay tuned for more coming soon!
