My friend Brittany recently gave us a few hand-me-down items. Daughter immediately claimed a particular skirt. “I love the fabric,” she said. “You can do something with it.”
I agreed on the fabric, but some of the length had to go and I wanted a look better for a 12-year old girl.
I cut it to the top of the slit in the back. Almost too short, but it would still hit her knees. The length cut off was turned into a ruffle and reattached.
This was her church outfit on a chilly Sunday last week. Brittany recognized her old skirt and was glad it had a new life where it would be loved.
Total time: About 1 hour 15 minutes. And we made it to church on time. Hey, service on a Sunday is good works, right?
