Project; Refashion skirts from old trousers

Refashioned Skirts from old trousers

Call me odd (it’s okay – my kids do), but I think these refashioned skirts are just too cute.

Refashioning a couple of pairs in into maxi skirts. The original idea is from a skirt belonging to Babylonglegs.

The first is from chocolate needlecord bootlegs, with added godets (inserts) from William Morris curtain material and waxed cotton wide trim on the bottom.

The other skirt*photo below) is made from honey beige brushed cotton twill trousers and more William Morris godets. It isn’t quite finished (and needs an iron!) but it will have cotton curtain trimming, which I have tea-dyed, added on the bottom .
