This week I'll be sharing a couple of refashions that I've been working on. First up, this knit dress a la Target last fall...
It was $10 on clearance, and I loved the stripes. Problem was that it was too short. Since it had an empire waist I figured that I could make a skirt of it that would be the perfect length. If that didn't exactly work, well I'd have some good striped knit to do something else with. So I bought it, and it's been in my closet waiting for a free creative moment.
Match the side seams together in the middle and smooth out the waistband. Put a pin on the raw edge in the fold on either side. These will be North and South. Add a few extra pins to keep the raw edge of your waistband together.
Using the same method as above find North, South, East, and West on your skirt and mark with pins.
Turn the skirt wrong side out and place the waistband inside. Match the raw edge North, South, East, and West points to the waistband and pin in place. Then pin in between these points all the way around the waistband.
Turn right side out, press seam toward skirt, and you're done.
Wear it with pride!
