Here is that tutorial I promised – I forgot to mention that I technically “upcycled” this skirt from unwanted fabric (which I wanted, duh). Do you know the difference between upcycling and refashioning? Well, there isn’t much of a difference! Upcycling is when you turn unused stuff, or junk to something useable, while refashioning is when you take something and transform it into something else. In another words…it is just a more awesome new way to say refashioning.
1. First and foremost cut the piece of fabric to the width (formula below) and length plus 2.5 inches (how long you want it to be), make sure it is PERFECTLY cut….then sew the bottom, top and ends in an inch (which I wish I had done) !
Last, sew in a zipper, buttons, or hook and eyes (that what I did) onto extra fabric that was sewed under, so you can’t see any extra sewing. Unless you want the buttons or zippers to be seen!
