Ann Taylor LOFT skirt remake – Fine to Fetching

For today’s skirt refashion, we started with two thrifted skirts.  Skirt number 1: A cute Ann Taylor Loft selection, just a little too short and plain for our taste. Cost $2.00

We also found a skirt in the girl’s section in the exact same shade of lime green!

Fine also, just fine, but nuthin’ special…yet.  Cost? $3.00

So here’s what we did:

Step 1:  Cut top off of lime green skirt.

Step 2: Pin and then sew on top of green ruffles to bottom of Ann Taylor skirt. (They were almost exactly the same measurement!

Step 3:  Sew 3 additional decorative stitching lines below hem.

How about that skirt now?  Try that one on for some immediate bounce in your step!

Total Cost: $5.00

Total Time: 20 minutes

Talent Level: Beginner Seamstress

Do you love this refashion as much as we do, so much that you can’t live without it?  Well, it is currently for sale in our Etsy shop along with some other things we’ve created!  Just click through to complete the sale and look fetching, too!
