denim skirt refashion

This is the original skirt I was going to wear last weekend. It turned out a little too casual for the event. I was planning on wearing it with black tights and boots. Now I’m wondering if it might look better with a t-shirt and sandals.

I really hacked this poor thing up. I cut off the bottom two ruffles and took it in on either side, trying to make it more a-line and less Holly Hobby. (Not that there is anything wrong with HH. It’s just not a good look on me.)

It’s been a long time since I’ve refashioned something. I can’t wait to dive into the stack of clothes that have been waiting patiently by my sewing machine.

refashion: This was an impulse buy at a garage sale last summer. I think it cost 75 cents. I’m hoping to use the leftover ruffles to lengthen some of my daughter’s jeans.

    I JUST noticed that you use letters to spell out “before” and “after” in your photos. That detail gave me a little chuckle this morning : )

    Also, your blog has inspired me to hang on to my clothes that don’t fit any longer. Too bad I have a boy though.

    Great refashion and to get 2 uses out of one garment is great. It will look great with boots.
