Today, I’m sharing a super easy project I did last week. And when I say super easy, I mean super easy and super fast!!! I actually did this in about 5 min. (including taking pictures) last week in the morning before we left for a day out on the town!!
I found this Liberty of London dress on the clearance rack at Target for $4. I absolutely love the print of the fabric, but the shape and cut of the dress was doing absolutely nothing for me.
So, I made it into a skirt! In a very simple, almost primitive manner! First thing I did was cut the top halter of the dress off.
Two separate pieces - - I just threw the top part away, it wasn’t really a big enough scrap to do anything with - - although, now I’m thinking I should have saved it and made a fabric flower to embellish the shirt I wear with the skirt. Oh well, too late now!!
Next, I made a simple folded over top hem and sewed my elastic directly on top of the hem, stretching the elastic as I went, which made the skirt ruffle up perfectly when I was done.
Quick, Easy and Fabulously cute!!!
