Repurpose Friday

Fun school chalkboard check.

Now something new for school. This year Purplicious and I decided to try our hand at re-purposing 2 of her FAVORITE dresses that had grown too short.


It was quick and easy and she LOVED it!

Here is a quick run through of what I did.

1.  Cut dress just below the arms as straight as possible.  (Side note after the fact I discovered it might have been helpful to somehow mark the front from back of your skirt!)


2.  Fold fabric over to form a casing for the elastic and sew around skirt leaving an opening.


3.  Thread elastic measured to desired waist length into casing.

4.  Sew elastic and casing.
