Dress-to-Skirt Refashion | Part Two!

June 24, 2014

Hello, friends!  We’ll call today “How Tuesday” because I am sharing the second edition of my dress-to-skirt refashion tutorial video.  That’s right, I have another video tutorial for you today showing you another method for transforming a dress into a skirt.  Are you ready?  Because here it is (without hardly any ado whatsoever)!

It is no secret that I am a fan of thrift shopping and of skirts; unfortunately, I am rarely ever able to find skirts that I like at thrift stores.  Luckily, I do have a keen eye for dresses that can easily be transformed into skirts!  I am sure there are a million different ways to refashion dresses (and other articles of clothing) into skirts, but this method is probably my favorite (with my first video tutorial being a close second favorite).


Sadly, I totally forgot to take a “before” picture of the dress, like a super lame-o, so there is no fun before-n-after photo.  But I did take a few snaps of the skirt styled with a stripe top and my leopard flats.


I hope you enjoyed this second installment of my Dress-to-Skirt Refashion tutorial!  Feel free to let me know if there are any other tutorials you’d like to see me attempt, and don’t forget that there is still time to join the Summer Nights Nail Art Link Up fun!!  We’ll be posting our designs this Friday and I’d love to include YOU!

As always, thanks for reading (and watching)!  – Kristi :)

    I don’t know what I like more…the whimsical music while you cut, sew, etc. or the finished product :) You are really inspiring me to do some refashions!!! Sometimes it’s difficult to imagine what the finished product could look like when you find a potential items to refashion in a thrift store, but I feel like I need to try at least once! Great job!!
