UPCYCLED SKIRT


Here is a project that I had some fun with. It came to me last minute as I was making some alterations for a friend. She had asked me to cut and hem a jersey shirt because the bottom was too tight. She also asked me to make some curtains shorter because they were too long as she was afraid that her granddaughter would pull them down. 

I made a child skirt out of the bottom of the jersey shirt and curtains!!!!!

I cut the bottom of the jersey to make it shorter. I took out the hem and made the elastic shorter to fit a toddler. I took one panel of the curtain and took out the linings on the fabric. I then sewed some lining onto the shiny fabric. Then I attached the fabric with the lining to the jersey material. That took me some time to figure it out hehe. Then I took some more fabric and made a cute rolled Rose. I attached the rose with a cute button to the skirt.

Viola a cute upcycled skirt for a little princess. I love it. I may have to make myself one!!!!
