Have lots of long skirts from thrift shops? Did you know you can give them a second life as a dress? Turn a long India skirt into a simple knee length dress in an afternoon – it can still be worn as a skirt too!
You will need:
One long India skirt;
Sewing machine with zigzag stitch;
Regular cotton thread that matches your skirt;
Seam ripper (just in case)
