As I mentioned earlier, I unfortunately lost one of my favorite shirts to a very obvious chest stain. It was quite sad. However, the color of the top & the sweet beaded shoulder details reminded me of something feminine about the Minikin Tutus. So, I made a little bow skirt for Penelope. Here’s the before:
I loved how simple this jersey top was. I got it at H&M in New York for $10. I also loved the beading on the shoulders. I deconstructed the beading (with the help of Jill – that part was rather time-consuming) and attached it to the bottom of Penelope’s new skirt.
Et voila! I did this refashion in under 20 minutes (minus the beading) using my adjustable bow skirt technique. It was incredibly easy & really fun. Penelope loves that she has two new twirly skirts in her closet! I like it, too. She’s outgrowing a lot of her skirts, and most of them are just glorified bum covers. It’s nice that she’ll have a couple of skirts she’ll be able to wear for some time.
