Mermaid Skirt Remake – Oofda to Oooh La La!

For this stunning skirt refashion we started with 2 pieces that had great bones, but could use some pick-me-up.  We started with a plain denim mini.  Plain, but with potential for so much more! Cost $2.50

Next we found a blue polka dot skirt with colors that popped…a few sizes too large. Cost $2.00

That thing is so big, I think we could…hey come here model #2!

Verrrry funny, but a little hard to go out in public like that!

Here’s what we did:

Step 1: Measure bottom of mini.

Step 2: Fold in one section of polka dot skirt until it fits same measurement.

Step 3: Sew together sections of polka dot skirt, cut off excess on inside.

Step 4: Sew top of polka dot skirt inside bottom of mini.

Presenting….oooh la la!  We call this our mermaid skirt, with it’s flirty tail.

Total Cost: $4.50

Total Time: Approximately 30 minutes

Talent Level: Beginner Seamstress

Now that’s something she’ll be wearing in public…often!
