Re-purposing Another Skirt

Now that the holidays are over I thought I would get back to the pile of old clothes in the corner of my craft room. This is another skirt form my sisters goodwill pile.
Before: I liked the pattern in this one.
I can't tell you how easy it is to repurpose clothes. I don't think I'll ever make anything from scratch again. I especially love not having to hem. This took me about 45 minutes, even with kids at my feet.

Oh COOL!! I think this is extra snazzy because I just did the same thing with a skirt that's been hanging in my closet for over 2 years!! And now my oldest daughter gets to wear it as a pinafore and luuuurves it!

You did a great job! Does it just have buttons or something in the back? I've gotta share mine, too! =-D

Hi Kalleen, I just wanted you to know that I have featured your re-purposing skills and have quoted you. You are a genious.

Have a wonderful day!
