Here are a few ideas of how to make frugal and modest skirts from materials you have on hand. If you click on the pictures, they will take you to the tutorial link. I will hopefully have a few pictures of our own to share next week. Happy sewing!
Rainbow Patchwork Skirt —> I am in awe. This just made my top ten sewing list.
Better Homes and Gardens has a FREE pattern and tutorial for this Simple Circle Skirt. I’m thinking left-over materials = children’s skirt.
Hi, my name is Danielle. I have an addiction to Peasant Skirts. If you can relate, this tutorial is for you.
One of our local thrift stores has pillow cases for $0.25 each, making these Pillowcase Skirts a VERY frugal choice for our growing-like-weed daughters. I have been working a few of these. Very simple and cute. Use the excess to make a ruffle bottom (shown below) add lace, DIY t-shirt flowers, ribbon. Your creativity is the limit on this one ladies, have fun!
Another project I’ve been working on it turning several maternity dresses into ankle-length skirts. This is a fairly simple and very frugal way to bump up your wardrobe without spending a dime. Simply measure the skirt to the desired length (leaving seam allowance, naturally) and cut. You can use the excess to create a draw-string skirt or for embellishments (think mix and match). I have some old waist bands from worn out sweats and yoga pants that I will be giving a second life to as well. Waist not want not.
