DIY: Refashion a Jersey Skirt

begin with an unflattering skirt

preferably in a jersey knit

* I don’t doubt these skirts will come back in style, and while it does hit at the right point of my knee to flatter my leg, there’s too much going on around the waist, which is supposed to sit on the hips = unflattering.

What to do with it?

Cut it!

* Lying flat, measure up about 5-6 inches from the bottom and make a cut at the side seam. You may choose to cut both layers together {carefully} or cut a single layer all the way around

Creating . . .

an infinity scarf

* I wrapped mine three times for a layered look …twisting it will give it a knew look

Or …cut it at a seam

and wear it as a belt

or wear it as a turban

This easy DIY most resembles the Unisex Circle Scarf and the Unisex Jersey Scarf both from American Apparel. This little guy really has endless wearable options. See what you can come up with.

Have Fun!
