Maxi T-shirt Dress to Midi Gathered Skirt ~ Refashion

Little Miss recently presented me with a bag of sewing that she wanted me to do for her. Amongst the items was the maxi rainbow t-shirt dress I had made her a couple of years ago. It still fitted fine, but she no longer liked how it looked on her.

All she wanted was for me to turn it into a skirt. Easy as!!! Chop off the t-shirt, turn a hem, thread some elastic, and within minutes her new skirt was ready.

If you've never made a casing for a gathered skirt, check out the simple gathered skirt tutorial.

It's been a while since I've made any garments for Little Miss. She groaned when I mentioned photos, so I told her to put the skirt on and go outside and play. And so I snapped away with the camera while she played.

  1. You know ... she may not remember the exact details when she grows up, but I bet she'll remember going to grandma for things like that, and grandma being a nice grandma and fixing her up :) Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

  2. I am glad she asked you to alter it instead of just letting it go unworn!
