This 80’s style midi flared skirt transformed to 2015 trendy knee length gathered full skirt today.
My friend brought it to me because of the reason “unflattering and out of fashion”. This skirt was “80’s full skirt came back so you can wear it” but “something boring”. I chose to make it over.
Cut and divide skirt under the waist band.
Separate waist band
Separate original zipper from skirt.
Open both side seam for pocket attachment.
Create NEW side seam pocket(i love skirt with pocket)
Measure waist band(i used original waist band again) and gather skirt waist.
Attach two pockets on each side seam.
Attach invisible zipper and close side seam.
Attach waist band.
My best part was Peekaboo lace pocket.
So many pretty full skirt outfits are out there.
