Completing the Up-cycle: A Skirt

Posted on Updated on

Some of my followers who have been around for a while might remember when I up-cycled a maxi dress into a mini dress and promised to make the rest a skirt.  Well, that moment has come!

Here is the up-cycled skirt process:

I took the left over skirt that I cut off the maxi dress and put it on inside out. From there I pinned the sides, much like I did when I took my pants in a few weeks ago. Once pinned I sewed the sides up like a dart using a zig-zag stitch to accommodate the stretch in the fabric. I then trimmed the excess and folded the top over and ran a zig-zag hem around the top.

Tada! Super easy skirt from dress scraps!
