I picked up this skirt about two years ago, and had it stored inside my sewing cabinet for “sometime in the future.”  So when I decided to do this series of Bows Refashions, this skirt was going to get remade.

I really like the skirt before it was redone, except that it was three sizes too big for me and fell off my waist.  But it’s cute, am I right?

Okay, so the inside of this skirt has an elastic that’s seen its better days.  Out you go.  I took off the waist band, here … just as a side note, you can pretty much transform any fabric, skirt, or even a shirt into a skirt for this project.  That’s why I added the black t-shirt material (above).  If you are going to go that route, cut a piece of fabric about twice the size of the waist, here, and make sure to add a couple of inches for the edge.

I took out some of the stitches where the fabric meets together.

Then, I sewed them into edges, so that there is a hole there.

Pin the fabric back to the skirt.  Now, I pinned so that the fabric will make a “chevron” type of pattern … I really liked that it did that.  But, you can sew it correctly.  I made an oopsie the first time and sewed the waist on inside out, so make sure you sew the right sides together. 🙂
