Reagan had this cute yellow skirt from last year that was of course too short this summer. So, like my last post, I up-cycled it! Sorry I am blogland's worst at remembering to take a before pic so use your wonderful imagination....plain yellow skirt. I bought the brown fabric from HL (I believe it was about a 1/4 of a yard). All I did was measure how much longer I wanted the skirt to be and cut the fabric. I did use the entire width, which was 54". I sewed the right sides together and gathered and pinned as I went around the skirt to make the ruffle effect. Hem the bottom and the skirt is done!
Now for the shirt. I paid $3.50 for the shirt at WM.
First, cut a strip of fabric the width you want your flower and fold in a circular direction.
Once you lay the first flower on the shirt you will have to adjust it and possibly do some re-folding, then pin in place and sew.
Do the same steps for the second layer of the flower just use a smaller strip of fabric.
Then, sew on a cute button or jewel to cover up the middle.
All done with a new outfit for about $7! Sorry, my model quit on me tonight, but you get the idea!
