Little Girl's Modest Skirt Makeover {Finished Friday #44} come and link up your projects, too!

link up your finished projects at the bottom of this post

I've had a pile of little girls' skirts waiting for alterations for several months. Someone had generously passed down several size 2T skirts with sewn in shorts for Eliya, but they are shorter than we prefer. While I still have a lot to alter, I was able to get one lengthened this week.

The best thing about this project was that it was completely free. The skirt was given to us, the thread was from my stash, and the fabric that I used to lengthen the skirt was a t-shirt from my knit stash.

I was a little limited in my lengthening style because I didn't have enough fabric to gather into another ruffle, but for a play skirt it works just fine.

To lengthen the skirt I simply sewed rectangles of solid pink knit together to form a tube the same circumference as the bottom hem of the skirt. Then I pinned and sewed the pink layer to the existing bottom and hemmed the new bottom.

Of course, the only picture I have of her wearing it is when she woke up too early from her nap and decided to rest a little longer on top of the kids' table. (She then promptly got the skirt so dirty it had to be thrown in the wash.)


I'm adding this skirt alteration to Kristin's summer challenge.



Today's Questions: Have you ever altered clothing for yourself or your children? What is your go to alteration?
I'm trying to hold myself accountable to finish some of the projects on my to do list by posting each Friday about a project I've completed.
Would you like to join in? Link up to your own projects below.

1.
Link to your project post, not your blog's home page, so we can find it easily.
2. Let us know what project you are sharing in your title, for example: Spring Wreath
3. We'd love it if your post links back here so that your readers can come join the fun. Feel free to copy & paste our Finished Friday Button into your post. (Just copy the text in the box below the button, click on the "Edit HTML" tab for your post and paste it there.)
