Shortening a skirt and gaining a headband!

I had this really long skirt that used to drag along the ground.  Not much fun in the wet.

So I decided to shorten it a little.  As it had a bold pattern, I decided to shorten it from the top (an old curtain trick that I picked up along the way!)

I cut the waistband off, took out the zip, sewed it back up and added some elastication (I don't show my waistbands anyway!)

And lo and behold I not only had a new skirt - it also came with its own matching headband!

If you'd like to see more pictures of this and other refashions you can come on over to my blog at:

Happy refashioning everyone!

I never think of shortening a skirt fromthe top! Very clever.
