My niece Courtney gave me this fabulous idea on Pinterest.  I hunted around the Goodwill until I found the perfect shirt.  So today, we’re going to refashion this one into a skirt.  As soon as you figure out how wonderfully easy, and how wonderfully sexy the result is, I bet you’ll make a dozen of them.

Refashioning a Skirt from a Dress

This dress was one of dresses from my mother.  I really loved it but I have such a hard time wearing anything that I can’t wear a bra with.  I realize that there are strapless bras … but those suck.  So it’s time for a refashion!

I love short sleeve tops because they are so versatile.  I wear them the entire year with shorts, jeans, or skirts.  If it’s cold, I throw on a sweater or a scarf on top to complete the look.  But since I’ve been doing so many blog posts about refashioning tops into short sleeves, I thought I would do something different today.

Remember this top?

Remaking a Long Sleeved Knit Top

I found this knit top during one of my thrifting store scouts.  I love the kind of pleated detail in the front, but the top itself was too big and I wanted a summer top, not a winter top.  So I decided to make it exactly what I wanted. 🙂
