I have an old skirt that is too long and full (too much fabric) to be fashionable, I was wondering if you knew of any tutorials for restyling that would let me make it into something else? I really like the print of the fabric so I don’t want to throw it out. Thanks!
truebluemeandyou: If you know how to sew you could recut it into a 1/4 circle skirt with a good tutorial here: truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/post/36459911223/diy-foolproof-circle-skirt-tutorial You could also look through my fashion tags for ideas like my restyle tag here (although lots of tops and tees on it) http://truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/restyle. Another way to go would be to take the fabric you love and make pillows.
Suggestions from Tumblr Readers?
avieauna answered: Can she show us a picture? Then it would be *so* easy to restyle!
amandatriplet answered: shorter/smaller skirt, a bag, pillow, even shorts, maybe if there’s enough fabric. :) Or, cut a square and frame it as artwork!
lovelullabies answered: Pull it up over your boobies. Make it as tight as you need to by zipping up the zipper til it fits and doesn’t fall. Put the zipper at the front like bottoms of a shirt. Tuck in the lose corners or let them be. Whatever you want. And then cinch it at the waist with a belt. = dress. :)
