On this skirt remake, I started with two pieces with potential that just weren’t cutting it yet. The first was a tan corduroy mini skirt.
I don’t like that length, so the miniskirt wasn’t working. Cost $2.50 at a thrift store.
The second was a knee length brown floral skirt – a linen piece with tiny wooden beads. The length was ok, and I loved the ruffle underneath, but I thought it would be much nicer paired with the mini. Cost $2.00 again, a thrift store.
1. I pinned the brown floral skirt to the underneath of the corduroy one.
2. I sewed the brown florta skirt in place, and cut off the waistband.
Look at it now! This is my favorite kind of thrift store remake skirt, a ten-minute, easy winner that is doubly cute afterwards. It is adorable dressed up with a button-down top and heels, or dressed down with a plain blouse and flats.
Total time: 10minutes
Total cost $4.50
