by This is Carrie on March 2, 2010

I always love a good tiered skirt refashion.

BEFORE:  Tiered women’s skirt picked up at Savers Thrift Store.

AFTER: A new dress for Princess made one rainy Saturday morning.

SWOON! Any chance you can show us how you did it so that it wasn’t too loose up top, and those great sleeves? This is so beautiful!

This is lovely! Would you, pretty please, consider doing a tutorial??

This is amazing! I just started following your blog and I love the stuff you do. I am inspired to give sewing another try … I used to do more of it, but I’ve been working almost entirely with paper for some time and I think I’m ready to give cloth another try. I just can’t stay away from the beautiful fabrics, thrift store possibilities and ideas like this one!! I don’t have children to sew for (yet!), but I’d still love it if you’d share how you made this dress. I’ll bookmark it for when the time comes. :-)

i just bought a skirt like this for $1. i was going to do something else, but i might meld the two ideas. i really like your straps.

How incredibly adorable! Now I just need a little girl to make it for!

Would you believe I have the EXACT same cowboy boots this little girl is wearing from when I was 5 years old? (glad my Mom kept them, so I can pass them on!)

Love your ideas! I definitely want to try this one for my little daughter. Right now she is only 8 months, so I have lots of time to practice. Or I could try a little girl’s skirt transformed to a baby dress!
