Dress to Skirt Refashion

I am really trying to make my way through the pile of clothes I have set aside to refashion. This one took me ALL week to finish. Once I decided what I wanted to do with the skirt (which took the longest amount of time), it went pretty fast. I had to take out a couple of seams and redo them, but I am beginning to accept this as part of the process.

I loved the fabric, but it was too big and not very flattering at all. I thought about keeping the gathered waist and just taking it in some on the sides. Then I looked at the skirts in my closet that I actually wear and realized I need to make it more fitted. I used a skirt from my closet to make the pattern and even put in an invisible zipper. I also used the existing lining for the lining of the skirt.

It is far from perfect, but at least it is wearable.

Happy Crafty Tuesday everyone.

Great job! It looks great on you, too. Sometimes you just want to take the easy path, but really...if you aren't going to wear it that way it's just not worth it. Glad you took the time to make it the way you need it to be for it to be wearable. :)

Can't wait to see more of your refashion projects. :)

Great job! I wish I had more experience sewing/altering clothes. I have a ton of stuff I don't wear but can't bear to throw out!
