Dress cut down into skirt.

Instructions

  1. How to recycle a dress into a skirt. Dress Into Skirt - Step 1 1

    First cut out the zip from the dess. You don't have to be that neat, but I like to keep zips for future projects.

    Then I cut off the top of the dress. I pinned the line and cut an inch above the pins.

    Then sew a hem (a running stitch is fine.)Make it wide enough for the elastic and safety pin to get through.

    Attach a safety pin to the elastic and feed it through the hem, knot the elastic, hide the knot in the seam and sew up the gap.
