Two years ago, I gave into my passion for long, floaty boho skirts, and accumulated nearly a dozen from thrift stores.
Last year, I turned several into summery dresses, using only stash. I love them more than the skirts!
I cut the bottom off a sleeveless blouse to make the yoke for this one:
The shoulders/sleeves are a crocheted doily cut in half and reinforced with muslin.
I recycled a favorite blouse by cutting off the ugly stain. Those are coconut. shell buttons around the neck. The skirt was originally kelly green, I turned it olive by soaking in Thai tea.
Mother of pearl buttons around the neck:
This one looks slightly better on me than on the hanger, but needs a rethink. The bodice features black lace over white fabric.
I recycled a blouse I kind of hated for this yoke; it had these awful, stiff ruffles around the armholes. The neck binding was the skirt waistband.
Awesome refashions! You have an eye for combining fabrics
Wow! I’m impressed. These look great and super flowy and comfortable.
I’ve added a “tutorial” in the boho skirts to blouses thread.
Great job! I love boho skirts
Fantastic! I have some long skirts that could use refreshing.
Such a cleaver idea. They are so cute and look fun to wear.
This! The structures are wonderful, but the combinations make them so cohesive and pretty.
I love these SO MUCH! Long flowy skirts are wonderful, but sometimes you do want the more direct airflow of a shorter dress.
What a great way to upcycle the skirts! They’re all so fashionable! There are quite a few where I can’t tell which fabrics you added to turn them into dresses, the fabrics all work really well together!
These bring awesome new life to old clothes! I love the neckline details you added.
These are so pretty. You have an amazing wardrobe. The white one is my favorite. It’s so sweet and spring-y.
