Muu Muu to Maxi Skirt

Last week I shared this Refashion with you:


After I made this Dolman Shirt, there was enough fabric left for a Maxi Skirt :)


I took in the skirt to fit, and with scrap leftover from that, I added length to the bottom.


I'm pretty short (5'2) and have a VERY distinct Pear Shape... so Maxi Skirts aren't always the best look for me. I hardly ever wear them, but this was a nice change. I wore this a few times and it was very comfortable.


Sorry about the blurry pictures...camera fail :-/

hhmmmm,...5'2", distinct pear....sounds like we have very similar builds. I'm going to have to go check out your blog closer for ideas. Though, I must say, you seem to be more..let's say hourglass shaped than me!:-) thanks for sharing!

I am 5' and maxi skirts from the store are not made for short ladies. I like that you made your own. It looks great.

I am glad to read about the hour glass remark. i had the very same description in mind as well. I like the color and how well you wear it. I really like the ensemble you made to style it.
