Happy Friday everyone!
For this week’s refashion I started out with this too big tank-top that my daughter wasn’t all that interested in…
Obviously this wouldn’t work for her as-is, but she can always use more skirts, especially in the summer!
To begin, I trimmed along the neckline, to even things up a bit…
Then I found a waistband that came off of a pair of pajama pants that I had refashioned into an infinity scarf a while ago.
This will come in handy!
After seam-ripping the elastic away from the waistband, I measured it around the front of kid #2’s waist (a.k.a. my daughter’s), and cut it to size.
Then I inserted the elastic into the cut-open part of the waistband of the skirt (what used to be the neckline).
Then I hand-stitched it closed, using a hidden stitch.
Note: If you would like to know how to do this, here’s a great hidden-stitch tutorial from Fern and Freckle.
Once the seam was sewn shut, the skirt was all done.
Because the elastic bunched what was formerly the front of the shirt together, I thought it would look better worn backwards.
… and the back…
So there you have it!
Pretty easy huh?
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
