Continuing the theme of up-cycled denim skirts I created this one using a short denim skirt and a party dress. I attached the skirt to the bottom of the denim and removed the flower trim from the bodice of the dress and used them as trim for the skirt. It required a bit of hand sewing to secure the flowers but I love the yellow added to the skirt. I am humming "You are My Sunshine" as I write this! This skirt is also for sale on my Etsy shop so if you are looking for a unique skirt that is casual and yet says "PARTY", jump on over to https://www.etsy.com/shop/FreshMakedHome
I have been trying a few new techniques for updating denim skirts. I've seen a lot of jeans made into skirts and skirts with gathered tiers added but when I saw a skirt with a knitted lace flounce I just had to try my hand at the look. I added a row of blanket stitching using size 3 cotton in off white. I used an embroidery needle making it quite easy to get through the denim. After the blanket stitching was in place I used cotton yarn and picked up one stitch in each blanket stitch. I choose a simple 10 stitch repeat lace pattern and began the knitted section repeating the pattern until the yarn ran out. The finished skirt is about 18 inches long. I love the look! If you like it the finished skirt if for sale on my Etsy shop.
