Happy Monday Everyone!
We are on Week number 9 of our Project Re-Style Challenge. If you are joining my Blog for the first time, I am doing A Restyle of something old or that doesn't fit, every week for one year. Monday is my Re-Style day! That's right, 52 weeks of Re-Styling. ~ I am starting to LOVE Mondays~
Sound fun ? All the details will be at the end of this post.
This weeks Re-Style is a skirt that I have had about a year. It was really long and really big, (4 inches too big). So instead of it just sitting in my closet or me giving it away, I decided to make it shorter and tighter.
It is such a great Spring color, and now it is full and bouncy and fun.
I can't wait to wear it.
So here is my tutorial and please bear with me,
tutorials are hard to do sometimes.
Here is what I did.
I turned it inside out.
I ripped out the slip and zipper.
I made the slip smaller to fit me, and reattached the zipper to the slip, so I could use it under my new skirt.
I took the skirt and cut it to the length that I wanted.
Then with the material I cut off, I folded that in half and made a tube for the elastic band, i left an opening to thread the elastic through. I measured my waist and cut a piece of elastic to fit me, and threaded it through the opening. Then I stitched the elastic together, and closed the opening with an invisible stitch.
I turned my skirt inside out , Placed the band on the inside of the skirt and pinned it to the skirt.
~ gathering the material to make it match up.
Then I sewed the band to the skirt.
This is how short I made the skirt, and the pink skirt is how the top of the skirt looked before.
And we are all done!
