I was cleaning out my clothes this weekend of the items that I did not wear this summer and I came across this skirt.
I didn't wear it this summer since it is a bit to short and sheer,but I saw other possibilities for it, so I kept it and started to cut it up. First I cut the waist band off.
I didn't cut the waistband since I have another idea for that which I will blog about at a later date.
I then marked a strip about 3" from the top of the ruffle with tailors chalk to guide me with my cutting.
I cut and then hemmed the side,folding over twice to make it look like the bottom edge.
Lastly I ran it thru my sewing machine and gathered it as I went.
I wanted just a little bit of ruffle and I wanted it to be random. I think it looks great and I still have some leftover to make something else.
It was easy and cheap! Look in your closet and see what you can upcycle! Enjoy!
