Girl’s Skirt From a Dress

refashioned dress to skirt

I remember what it was like to be a child and not to fit into clothes. I felt like some sort of jolly green giant when my mom would have me try on summer clothes from the year before and I didn’t fit into them. I grew quickly! If you have a child like me, and a dress like Nike that doesn’t fit anymore, then how about making a skirt from it? Visit Nike to get the full tutorial.

Turn a Dress Into a Maxi Skirt

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.

Maternity Skirt From Men’s Pants

I imagine no one wants to spend a bundle on maternity clothes. After all, you aren’t wearing them long – and the super stretchy waistband is often worn only at the end of a pregnancy. If you want some cute maternity clothes, like maybe a skirt, then check out this tutorial from Jen. You might not believe it, but she only spent $.23 on them. I’m so jealous!

Turn a Boy’s Wardrobe Into Girl’s Clothing

Boys grow so quickly don’t they? Sometimes they grow so quickly that they’ve barely worn something before you have to get rid of it. But these tutorials from Nike are so great because they demonstrate that you don’t really have to – just refashion! Nike turned a sweater into a cardigan, pants into a skirt and a henley into a pretty tee. The twist? The refashions turned everything into girl’s clothing. You’re going to love what she did; visit her blog to see more pictures and how she did it.

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.
