Denim Mini Refashion – Washed out to Wonderful!

We are so delighted with today’s refashion!  It’s simply scrumptious!  But we’re getting ahead of ourselves here, so we’ll back up to the beginning.  We started with a denim mini by Hartstrings.  We picked it up at Goodwill on back to school sale week in the kids department, so ended up paying all of $1!

Annie had been begging for a denim mini refashion like her big sisters, so we grabbed a skirt from her drawer that she didn’t wear too much.  Grandma brought it the other day from a thrift store, and it fit great, but looked a little washed out.

Here’s what we did:

Step 1: Cut off the bottom 3 tiers from the floral skirt.  This was actually the most time consuming step.  This skirt is full!

Step 2: Pinned and sewed on tiers to the bottom of denim mini.  We decide to sew them to the outside of the denim mini because we loved the look so well.

That’s it!  So easy and so fun!

One reason we knew the washed out pink skirt would work in this denim mini refashion was the light pink stitching detail on the back pockets and skirt.  See the hearts?  So scrumptiously adorable!
