Diy: Dress and Skirt Transformations!
I had a green dress and hi h was too short and a tad too tight. I also had a maxi brown skirt that I needed to transform...
I basically transformed and sort of merged two pieces into completely new garments to wear!
So basically, I cut off one of the layers of the brown skirt and added length to my green dress! I also had some brown fabric and I added that as a seam in the back to give me a couple of more inches (so I could now fit into it!) Voilà!
Next: The long maxi skirt...when I took the bottom layer off to use for the green dress, I still had enough to turn the fabric into sleeves.
I attached the sleeves to the skirt - and poof! Just like that it turned into a cute short dress!
Besides cutting, I stitched both layer and sleeves by hand. Super easy and fast!
Now i have two new dresses! Have you tried something like this? I’d live to know- And see!
Here’s the skirt transformed into a dress - with sleeves. The sleeves I used from the leftover fabric I used for lengthening the green dress.
Two finished products!
Here’s the new brown layer that transformed the dress.
Enjoyed the project?
