Top to Skirt Refashion

on August 15, 2014

I started with this top from that bag of clothes someone gave me. I knew I wouldn’t wear it as a top. I felt too bare up on top as I simply cannot wear strapless bras and I don’t really like any top that’s gathered at my waist.

???????????????????????????????

I cut off the circle holding the straps.

Then measured where I needed to cut for the new hem. I was going to flip the top upside down so that the elastic at the bottom would become my new waistband.

Cutting off the old “bodice” to become the new hem.

Fold over and stitch the new hem in place. Flip it around a voila…new skirt. Easy!20140815_105409
