Skirt Re-Do

This skirt is old. I mean OOOOOOld. I've had it forever. It's been a good skirt, but it's tired, and stained, and I've outgrown it.

It was in my "toss" pile, but I decided to try and give it new life, at least for this summer.

So I made a skirt for Grayson!! I cut a few inches off the top, keeping the layers together, and leaving the bottom untouched so I didn't have to hem it.

I made a casing for 1" elastic by rolling the top down 1/4", then 1 1/4" and sewing across the top.

This redo took all of 10 minutes. The eyelet pattern is so cute.

And I was able to keep a lot of the pretty eyelet detail around the top as well.

One quick wash in some bleach...and we have a beautiful WHITE skirt!
No more dingy yellow-ish skirt.

She loves the freedom of skirts.

And she didn't care too much that it was white...dirt is fun whether you're wearing white or not.

Love Love Love this skirt on her. And it's extra special since it was mine too.
