Tartan Skirt Refashion

I have been wanting to get a tartan skirt for ages so when I found a 100% wool skirt for £7 on ebay I jumped at the chance! I forgot to take any before photos but imagine a below the knee pencil skirt that was about two sizes too big! .

Now it is an above the knee pencil skirt that I love (not sure why there is a funny sticky out bit on the right, must be the way I am standing)! The skirt has a centre back zip so taking in the sides was easy and then I re-hemmed it at a better length.

It looks a little crushed in the photos, that is what 2 days in a row wearing it does :)

A final photo, this is what it looks like when it has just rescued a tree that has fallen over and deposited most of the decorations on the floor...(the innocent looking little girl was not innocent)!

Off to re-decorate the tree now...!

  1. The skirt looks great.

  2. Oh poor tree - we have had to tie ours to the wall this year. The baby likes to pull at it!

    Your tartan skirt is gorgeous, love the colour. Oh and I love your snowflake header, so pretty :)

    Hugs, Estelle xx

  3. I love this! I used to have one just like this, and loved it! Hope your tree made a good recovery!
