DIY maxi from an outdated skirt
Hiya, Chanda here with a super easy diy project that is perfect for the rising summer temperatures.
Yesterday was a blazing 102F and I just wanted to throw on something comfortable. Fortunately, I had snagged this staple piece from a thrift store recently.
It was all clean and ready for my summer wardrobe, but the flared shape and ankle-skimming length were just enough out-of-date that I knew I would never wear it. So, I quickly busted out my sewing machine and pins.
My first step was pinning the sides of the skirt into a narrower, more A-line silhouette. Now, it was time to cut away the excess fabric and sew up my new, trendier, seams.
Now, to address the length. The skirt hit me just a bit too high on the ankles, so I scoured my trinket drawer and found this awesome lace trim.
It was perfect! Just adding a subtle 2 inches to the length…and it couldn’t be a simpler fix…just pin and sew.
Ahhhhh, sooo comfortable! I love a cute maxi! Better than any pair of sweatpants!
Quick, go check the closet….I bet you have a skirt lurking, just waiting for a quickie makeover!
Thanks for checkin’ in on what we have been zestin‘!
