I am Remaking skirts 70's style




Creating recycled skirts to sell on Etsy and reliving my college days? Does anyone remember cutting off the bottom of the legs to worn out jeans and making a skirt?


I like to find gently worn or new skirts and recreate them into something unique..Some are new, never worn  like this Ann Taylor corduroy that I added a tartan plaid pocket and hand dyed doily accent with lace around the pleat.


This simple but flattering knit skirt just wanted coral lace around the bottom and bow made from the same lace...


Here I made the elastic waist skirt myself and added a signature pop art flower that reminded me of Andy Warhol. Love to know what you think of my designs and suggestions you have,
thanks for looking...

Love the jean skirt, I'd wear it, if I were of the age to and could pull off wearing something like that :-)
