a quick refashion

I made this skirt for C out of one of my old skirts and a bed skirt.

All I did was cut the side seams to her waist size, cut off the bottom tier and used the ruffle from a bed skirt for the bottom.

C had a taste for drama. This skirt is one of her new faves - I think the length and the bold black and white appeal to her. As soon as she saw it she knew she wanted to wear her Sharpie Tie Dyed T-shirt with it.

  7. Oh, I love the idea of using a bed skirt and turning it into an actual skirt! I might actually have to try this for myself...
