How many of your daughters clothes have you stuffed in the back of the closet because you just didn't have the heart to part with them.?
Then one day you got in there and you knew they had to go, they were hogging up much needed storage space.
Well I'm here to tell you that maybe, just maybe you can take that cute thing and repurpose it and enjoy it for years to come.
This idea popped into my head when I saw this darling little skirt. There's no way I could get away with wearing this little number except as an apron.
You will have to give this some thought because no two skirts are alike. I'll give you some ideas to get you going, but you will need to turn up the creative heat and work your skirt into something uniquely useful.
The skirt I bought I could actually get into so for me it was a matter of adding a waistband, bib and straps.
Of course your daughter has either grown up or out of her skirt.
If she's just taller then you will probably be able to duplicate what I've done which is simply adding a bib and some tie straps. Maybe a waistband.
If she's grown out, splitting the skirt up the back first and then hemming those raw edges should work.
Is your daughter planning a party with her friends?, what a great surprise it would be if you turned up with a few of her old skirts remade into these hip little aprons.
Great memories are made of stuff like this,as well as some wonderful picture taking opportunities.
These sweet remakes will become some of your favorite projects and aprons are something that you'll always be able to keep for your daughters and granddaughters.
The clothes she cherishes today will become the vintage of tomorrow.
Think of the fun these will be for granddaughters. They won't believe what their moms use to wear. What fun!
