Refashion – Mullet Skirt

I bought this knit dress at the thrift store the other night and did a quick (45 minutes!) refashion to make a mullet skirt. The bodice of the dress was too small for me but the skirt had a lot of fabric. I started by cutting off the bodice. Then trimmed away the front of the skirt. From the trimmings, I cut a waistband. Using the same technique that I used for my knit stripe skirt, I added elastic and serged the waistband onto the skirt. Then I hemmed the edge and finito! I'm very pleased with the outcome of this refashion. It only cost $5.99, was quick to make and is easy to wear.
