Tuxedo Skirt Refashion

Hello Refashion Co-op. This is Chickie from I Can Work With That. I love refashioning clothes. I have been a fan of Refashion Co-op for quite a while and I am so happy to submit an recent post.

 I put this refashion project together with two identical straight skirts that were both too tight. I just had baby #3 and my clothes don't fit after having my little guy. (Can anyone relate?)

I used the black skirt to fill in and enlarge the blue skirt. I cut the blue skirt right down the sides. I just cut a 2 strips of black and fit them in the blue skirt's side seam.  I sewed them in, lining and all.

After some final checks on the dress form, I was ready to go.

Here we are. This is one of my favorite projects, so far anyway.

For more details and pictures you can go here to see this project and others. Thanks for reading, now go make something fabulous for yourself.

Welcome to the community! I love tuxedo skirts because they look stylish but yet such a helpful tool when needing to make a skirt a teeny bit bigger. I was watching the movie Spy starring Melissa McCarthy, and I spotted Allison Janney wearing a nice tuxedo skirt. :)

Thanks for the welcome. I am going to check out the movie to see a tuxedo skirt in action.
