Turn a Dress Into a Maxi Skirt

dress to maxi skirt refashion

I’ve always wanted to try a maxi skirt but have been afraid that the knit fabric might not be, uh-hem, forgiving to my imperfections. I like this refashion that Mandy did – she used a ruffled dress that was way too large for her and scaled it down into a maxi skirt. I’m thinking those ruffles might be perfect for me! Now just to find a ruffled dress. Visit Mandy to get her tutorial.

Old Wedding Dress to Maxi Skirt

I have seen quite a few old, lace dresses at the thrift store, but I have no idea what to do with them. I think the vintage lace is so pretty, but wearing it as a dress seems silly. So this is a great idea – turn it into a maxi skirt! They are popular right now, so why not? Visit the link below for the tutorial.
