Once again, I forgot to take a before picture. Ugh!
Imagine a very ugly black skirt that fell somewhere between the ankle and the knee with back pockets. It wasn't very flattering so I never wore it. But for some reason, I held onto it.
My refashions up until now have been on clothes I found at Thrift stores or eBay. So, it was time to refashion something out of my own closet.
I love it now! I cut it just above the knee and added the ruffle so it will fall just at or below my knees. It looks exactly how I planned it.
I took the excess fabric I removed and cut it in two. I then sewed it together so it was twice the old circumference. I hemmed both sides before sewing a gathering stitch and pulling it into a ruffle. Once it was back to the original size it was easily reattached to the bottom of the skirt. Such an easy update.
