The Watermelon Skirt

Hello Refashion Co-op. I made this watermelon skirt recently. I did it for fun and to see how it would look when I was done.


I used this pink dress and this green skirt. The dress was too small at the top. I cut the top of the pink dress off and used the built-in elastic as a waistband.


You can see in the picture below where I cut off the top of the pink dress. You can see that I attached a 2 inch band of green to the bottom of the dress. I cut a couple inches of the green skirt and attached it to the pink skirt. I added some white rick-rack in between the pink and green to look like watermelon.


The black dots are sponged on with black paint.

So fun! I've been seeing watermelon dresses in my online shopping lately and wishing I had one. It never occurred to me to make my own! What a great idea!

Thanks Valerie. I saw a dress online but it was red instead of pink. Pink Watermelon made more sense to me. I would have kept the Dress if it had fit.
