Brown Floral Skirt – Lackluster to Linen Loveliness!

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
