Description

Found this long violet skirt with an elastic waistband at the thrift store and decided to repurpose it into this fun and easy skirt. When I started cutting it up, I realized the old skirt had been someone else’s handmade skirt! I made this version longer and the fabric sits nicer and doesn’t poof out so much.

    Clever design and cute skirt . Your wide waistband does a great job balancing the skirt’s short length, as well as balancing the skirt’s bright floral color. Perfect poofiness and very cool !
