Refashion friday: resizing a skirt

Here's another garage sale skirt refashioned to fit myself. The skirt was a large size and the elastic was shot.

 

I simply cut off the old casing, added 1/4 in. elastic in a new casing, 
and a few rows of shirring like I did on this skirt.

Do you refashion clothing? I would love to hear about your projects!

    Yes I love to refashion clothes but for some reason I never post pictures of things I sew. I really need to work on that beacuse I love to be inspired by what others do!

    Have a happy weekend!

  3. That is a really pretty skirt! Next time I see a large skirt that I like, I will try to refashion it instead of passing it by. :)
