Remember a couple of weeks ago when I asked how you would refashion a purple skirt that I had left over from Halloween? I received some pretty good ideas and most of them were focusing on making it into a dress. This idea got caught in my head but I didn’t feel that the skirt was long enough to just add straps. I just think that dresses/skirts below the knee suit me better. So I had to come up with another idea.
I have now refashioned the skirt adding a black knitted blouse to the top. Below you will find some instructions and images of the finished dress which I wore yesterday for the first time. This is one of my favorite refashions so far.
I thought the sleeves on the blouse were too long and a little too slimline. Also I have always wanted to try making bubbly sleeves. So this is my first attempt at that and I think it’s worked out well.
I would love to hear what you think about this refashion. If you have a skirt you want to refashion you are welcome to use these instructions or you can visit the ‘How would you refashion it (purple skirt)?‘ post where I have added all the ideas I received and some extra ones I found myself.
Do you want to help me out with ideas to my next refashion conundrum: ‘How would you refashion jeans?“. Next week I will update the post with all the wonderful suggestions and some ideas of my own.
