easy skirt makeover

I have had this skirt in my closet for about 4 years, and probably haven't worn it for the past two.  I don't hate it, but I just don't love it.  So when I lost my blue cotton skirt, I decided to transform this skirt into a plain blue skirt that I would wear much more frequently.  (I think I've already worn in 3 times in the past 2 weeks.)
The transformation was simple.  I hemmed the blue and orange fabric so that it was shorter than the blue lining underneath.Then I turned the skirt inside out, cut off all of the tags, and viola!  I have a brand-new skirt!  

Final Product:

(I'm actually a lot happier than I look in this picture.  Don't be deceived.)


  1. That is quite clever! You'd never guess that you have a little orange and blue secret on the other side of that skirt. Love it!
