Skirt from a Tank Top

While wandering around JCPenny the other day, my daughter and I came across this clearance tank top.  Not quite right to fit into my wardrobe or on my body, but a really fun shimmery purple fabric.

I cut it right about where the arm holes were, sewed a casing and added elastic, then ruched up a few places with some elastic thread.  

I used the scraps from the top to make this flower 

and with a couple other items from her closet, she had a whole new outfit for church.


  1. Seriously adorable! I can't believe you thought to do that?! Love it!

  2. That is a great refashion! Thanks for linking up to my link party. :)
