Yo, people!! Just popping in to show you a cool thing we did this week. We modified denim skirts to be cuter + more wearable!
We both had an old denim skirt, so long they dwarfed us, stashed in those creepy corners of our closets.
We never had pulled them out to wear! They were just free hand-me-downs that were taking up room and being useless. 😀 So, we shortened them!
Look at how cute Pearl’s turned out!!
For us people who can’t go and buy a brand-new denim skirt, modifying an old one is a perfect option!
Tip: Find an old skirt from a thrift store or dusty closet. It only needs to fit you on top and be a color/denim-wash you like.
Try on your skirt and make a mark at the length you want it when finished. Then make sure to add in a bit of seam allowance! Make marks (white pencil shows up well!) all the way around the skirt, measuring from the hem up to them to keep it the same length. Cut it around and hem.
Tip: Make sure to pin EVERYTHING, it turns out better. Don’t ask us how we know!! 😛 #pinningequalswinning
Great “new” skirts for free!!
Viola! Anna’s before and after…
You should try looking at the forgotten pieces in your closet and see what new gems you could upcycle them into!
We’re thinking about doing more posts like this (modified t-shirts, anyone?!), so tell us in the comments if that sounds cool!
Oh, and make sure to check out our YouTube. We just posted a #real vlog while taking pics of our finished skirts!
That’s all for now, folks!! And happy spring! 😃🌸🌷
