Hippe Skirt becomes lovely Gathered Dress

Added Jul 19, 2008

Montevallo, Alab...






So, this is used to be one of those shapeless broomstick/ hippie skirts.

But, I loved the feminine crinkly softness and color of the material, so I decided to release the inner integrity of the fabric. There are no patterns being used here, just a totally original design! It’s so soft and comfy!

Material Notes

one skirt, elastic, embroidery floss

    Your tutorial at craftster was great. I bought some of that fabric to make one, but I think I’m actually gonna need an already made skirt. I have on at the back of my closet somewhere!!!

    Thanks for this awesomeness.

    Thank you all so much for the kind words! I’m not sure if this would be considered crossposting or taboo in some way but I did put up a tutorial for making this pattern on craftster if you are interested!

    It’s so pretty! I’m always impressed by people who are able to change a piece of clothing into something else- this is really clever!!!
