Lace Skirt Restyle | DIY

Do you ever have projects on your list for what seems like forever but can’t find the perfect materials? Well this skirt was one of those projects. I came across this skirt at my local goodwill and even though it was ten sizes too big (like most thrift find instances) I snatched it up to restyle. This project is perfect if your skirt is not the right length and you want to make it a little longer.

Materials: Sewing machine, skirt, lace

First, try on your skirt and measure where you want your lace stripes. I placed a mark at my knee first then further down near my calf. Then, lay out your skirt on the floor and cut across where you marked. Pin your lace in place between strips of your skirt and sew. So simple!

 I love the turn out, and I also love it knotted. What are your weekend projects looking like?
