How To Turn a Sundress into a Maxi Skirt by Kristina

Thursday, June 28, 2012

Okay, I know maxi skirts are really easy to find in the summer, but they generally come in the most basic colors, and sometimes the best prints can be found in dress form. I've been wanting a blue striped skirt like this since I saw one on Anthropologie's website and was super duper thrilled to find this dress at the Gap Outlet. Here's a tutorial on how you can turn a similar jersey knit dress into a maxi skirt.

  3. That is such a great idea. I love sewing, but rarely tweek the clothes that I already own. I have a few maxi dress (that are annoyingly sleevless) that I might just go and change.
    Jess commented and suggested just wearing a top over, but this is a good option if you like to tuck your tops in sometimes.
    Thanks

  7. I find just wearing a top/jersey over the top of a maxi dress does the same job. I often get compliments about a 'skirt' which is actually a dress under a top. Means you still have the option of actually wearing it as a dress as well.
