Beaded White Skirt – Scary to Sweet!

For today’s refashion, we started with a denim mini!  After yesterday’s post we were itching to create using another denim mini!  This little cutie was just perfect for Aria because the waist was adjustable, you know those waistbands that include buttons and elastic?  Well, she loves those, because of her little skinny waist.  We picked it up at Goodwill for $2.00.

We also found a gorgeous beaded white skirt.  Aria, being part tomboy, didn’t feel like she could keep a white skirt well, white for very long!  But she loved the beading, and really wanted us to do something with it.  $3.00 Salvation Army.  Sorry we didn’t get a before picture!

Here’s what we did:

Step 1: Cut off top of white skirt.

Step 2: Sewed bottom of white skirt onto bottom of denim mini.

Step 3: Sewed one additional line of stitching to hold denim hem down when we wash it.

Well, there you go!  Aria loves it!  She’s so happy to practice with a 1/2 white skirt, and the beading pops!

Total Cost: $5.00

Total Time: 10 minutes

Talent Level: Beginning Seamstress

This is exactly the kind of refashion we love!  Good bones to start with, fast refashion, many, many days of use!

One thought on “Beaded White Skirt – Scary to Sweet!

  1. I love the blog! Thanks for sending the link. I even feel an itch to dust off my machine, which hasn’t been dusted off for ten years. I think the last I used it was when I started a quilt for McKenna when she was born. Anyway, this is a very inspiring and interesting read. I like all the expressions of the before and after pictures. There is lots of good information, too! Thanks for sharing.
