Skirt to Top - The Spring Version

This refashion is just a take on the original skirt to top refashion that I did a while back. If you want to try this, read through this original post first for basic instructions.

For the spring version, I started with this thrifted floral print skirt - some sort of light-weight fabric with a lining:

This skirt was too long to just use as is, and the waist was too small to fit right at my hips, so it required a little tweaking. You can see how I did it on my blog.

Lace Back Top

My inspiration:

from Charlotte Russe, although I don't think it's available anymore

My version:

I choose not to cut out the fabric underneath the lace - I actually tried a version where I did but did not like the way that it looked on me (probably more suited to someone in their 20's)

I don't have step-by-step photos of this project because there is really only one step - cut your lace to the shape you would like, lay out on the back of your shirt, pin in place, and sew down - an easy little way to incorporate the lace trend into your wardrobe.
