Upcycled Skirt And Shirt

Upcycled Skirt And Shirt

I’ve upcycled an old jeans skirt and a boring jersey top.

The skirt was an ugly, old, calf-length jeans skirt before, with countless, ugly, purple plastic buttons down the front.

I’ve shortened the skirt: now it’s knee-length. I’ve also turned the skirt into a wrap skirt, and added a leftover turquoise strip of fabric as belt.

I’ve added metal chains on one side of the skirt …

I’ve also added a D-ring for the keys.

For the flower appliques I’ve used the same turquoise fabric as for the belt.

It’s a rustic applique with frayed edges. I’ve stitched down the turquoise fabric strips with zigzag stitches and green sewing thread.

I’ve also upcycled the jersey top: It was a boring, plain white top before.

So I’ve used an old, holey, navy leggings, cut strips of fabric, turned the edges under, and stitched the stripes down with zigzag stitches.

Now I really like the upcycled skirt and top! 😀


Here I’ve printed another boring white halter-neck top with blue stripes.
