Making this Skirt Cuter Refashion #2

Once Upon A Time my now pregnant sister got married, and I was her bridesmaid.
She got married on the beach, and we all wore white linen skirts.
It was a beautiful wedding, and I was happy to not be in a hideous dress made of taffeta or some other equally horrifying material.
But now-nearly 5 years later-the white linen skirt (from Old Navy) is a little drab.
Refashion Time!!!
  1. I cut off the skirt to the length I wanted it.
  2. With some of the lining of the length I cut off, I cut some thin strips (you can see where this is going right?)
  3. I liked the raw edge of the skirt and lining of the linen, it gave a nice fray, so I just sewed an 1/8 inch line around the bottom to keep it from fraying any further than that-and didn't bother hemming it.
  4. With my stitch width set to 4, I whipped up a bunch of cute little ruffles, this time sewing right down the middle of the strip.
  5. I played around with the ruffles and pinned them where I wanted them.
  6. Then I just sewed them on....and the reveal....

What do you think was mission 'Make this Skirt Cuter' a success?
I'm pretty thrilled with it! :)

I love how it turned out with the ruffly texture and I have to say when the pictures are side by side you also look like you lost weight with the shorter length!!! CUTE

If you ever run out of things to do, you could offer a reader to send in something of theirs for you to salvage....you have amazing ideas! Would love to see what you would do with the denim skirt I've been wearing ten plus years...
