The Dyed Velvet Skirt

Hello Refashion Co-op. I hope you are well. My most recent project is a great Eddie Bauer skirt I found somewhere a long time ago. I can't remember how or when I got it. Do any of  you have trouble remembering where you got some of the things in your refashion stash? 


This tan skirt was way too long so I cut a lot of  it off to get it out of the way. My dog observed from the side to make sure I didn't mess it up.


I already have a tan skirt so I decided to change the color with some dye. After using a bottle of Rit dye I had this great dark brown color. The stitching is lighter and makes a nice contrast to the darker brown.


I took the skirt in on each side and gave it a new hem. It was really nice fabric and it didn't fray at all. I wanted it to look nicely finished. I pressed the new hem but I don't think it will need ironing normally. 


I love the skirt. It is soft and stretchy and comfortable.
