The Coat Skirt

Hello Refashion Co-op. I had a coat that wasn't really warm. What could I do with a thin coat? I made a skirt.


I cut the top of the coat off.


I stitched the coat/skirt closed in front. I finished the waist and folded the cut edge in. I tucked the lining in when I was sewing the waist so it is all closed up inside too. The lining is like a built in slip.


 I used a sew-on snap that came with the coat to close the waistband.


I was happy with how the skit turned out.


Thanks or reading along, for more pictures and details go to I Can Work With That.

This is so cute! Great save! I love the shape of the skirt and how it flares at the bottom!
