Repurposing a Dress Into a Skirt

Repurposing a Dress Into a Skirt

Today I thought we’d repurpose a dress into a skirt. There are many variations of this project. I’ll share some great repurposing links that I’ve found, and hopefully you’ll be inspired to try one yourself.

*Thanks to my everyone for feedback. I’m not a photographer, but now I know that natural light is my friend. I’ll do better next time :)

Here’s my original dress. I’ve had it for a long time, and I haven’t worn it in at least a year.

So, basically, I’m cutting it in half…

And creating an elastic casing in the waistband…

And here I am with a new skirt that I’ll wear often.

By the way, I can also finish the edges of the bodice top, and I’ll have a cute short jacket.

Here are some other easy refashions.
