Summer Fun Skirt

I had a white and black striped sun dress from Forever 21 and it was a little bit too short.

Striped Maxi Dress

Striped Maxi Dress Before


I decided to make the dress into a maxi skirt so instead of it being lifted high from my neck on down it would only be on my waist-down. I cut the top half of the dress off to start off my project. Then I measured where I would need to make my folds at. I folded a white stripe to a black stripe and made a waist band. i sewed all around and left a opening out to put the elastic inside of the skirt. After I was done sewing my waist band down with the opening I took a safety pin and put it on the end of the elastic to make it easier to pull the elastic through the skirt. After I had pulled the elastic through the skirt I sewed the elastic down and sewed the opening I had made for the elastic down too. I then made sure my skirt fit perfectly. It did!


This is how it looked afterwards
