Maxi skirts can be great and look amazing, but sometimes they just don't quite work. Instead of getting rid of it, turn it into a cute stylish jumper! I found this vintage 60s maxi skirt with a pretty pattern. It fit, but it didn't look right on me when I got it home so I decided to turn it into something fun.

Thing you will need:

  1. sewing machine
  2. scissors
  3. pins
  4. chalk or a bar of soap
  5. measuring tape

Step 1: Cut Skirt to Desired Length

  • Measure the length you want your skirt to be plus about an inch for seam allowance. Use a measuring tape or ruler and pin all around at that length. Cut the excess fabric off and save for the bib top.
