When a friend gave me this boring sweater tank, I held on to it for a while. “Meh…it’ll be okay for work.” (transl. : “This is really boring!”), I thought. Of course, I really don’t dress like a proper grownup at work, so this boring tank went completely unworn. :/
I recently scored a sweet sequined tank that didn’t work with anything in my wardrobe, so I decided to turn this tank into a cute miniskirt to pair it with! :)
First, I made a big chop, with the help of Mr. Spock!
Then, I pinned that top raw edge under twice…
and stitched it down, leaving a small gap at the end.
I took a length of elastic and threaded it through the gap into the casing.
Then, I stitched it together!
And that’s all it takes to make a quick & cute miniskirt from an unwanted tank top! :)
You can’t really tell what to top of my skirt looks like with that long sparkly tank over it, so here’s a closer look!
I wore my cute new skirt to a fun party with friends. For some reason we all piled into the bathroom (what???) to snap a pic! :)
Such a fun time! :)
