How To Refashion a Maxi Skirt

Sunday, April 22, 2012

Skirt:: H/M
Top:: GAPkids
Belt:: Target
Flats:: DSW
Bag:: FOSSIL Vintage Re-Issue

Last summer, I bought this white maxi from H/M knowing I'd shorten it. I've never been able to find a white midi skirt I liked and thought the embroidery at the bottom of this skirt was interesting enough to make the finished product look a bit like the White Trillums skirt from Anthro. 

I followed the slight curve of the design. Even if the skirt you use doesn't have a pattern, I'd still recommend cutting it off with a soft curve so the finished product will look more organic and natural.

I left the remaining length of the underskirt to serve as a built in lining (which I also hemmed) since white is easy to see through.

  1. Gorgeous! You are so insanely talented.

  2. Thanks for the comment! I love the crocheted dress so much too :)
    I can't believe the size inconsistentcy...It's crazy!

    It's seriously my *dream* dress, I've been after a crochet dress with sleeves for years and years that I could layer over tee-shirt dresses and slips!

    *Crossing* my fingers for one that fits perfectly ;)

    By the way, I'm loving this skirt...You are soo talented!!
    It's gorgeous with the white eyelet fabric! Perfect summer skirt :)

    I'm such a sucker for anything white/cream/ivory with eyelet or crochet!!!

    Hope your family had a wonderful weekend and you were able so soak up some sunshine :0)

  3. Beautifully shortened. I wore midi skirts for so long, that I was thinking of shortening some of my skirts, but I guess not, now that they're back in style.

  4. I wish I could look as cute in a midi skirt as you do Kristina! It's so pretty, and love it with the stripes. Plus, what an amazing bag :)
