This week I discovered a new thrift store in my neighborhood where I scored the lace jacket above for $2.60. I immediately decided to refashion it into a skirt. It was way more complicated than I thought I would be, but I’m still going to share a quick summary.
After the basic alterations above, I made numerous little tweaks here and there to get a perfect fit. I used my dress form to help me see where alterations needed to be made.
Here are the final results.

I got together with a group of refashion bloggers to do a little online refashion party. We all had to refashion something red. With that one guideline, we all set to work. Check out their projects below.
