Upcycling skirts

This week I'm looking at skirts and what can be done to upcycle them.


For me, the first thing I would think of to make from a skirt is a bag because a skirt's shape is well suited to this.

Here's a bag I made from one of my daughter's old skirts that no longer fitted her:

This was a nice simple upcycle - as I just needed to stitch the bottom of the skirt closed ( it was already a lined skirt - so produced a nice lined bag). Then added straps and embellishments!

Here are some other bags that people have made from skirts:

This one from Blissful and Domestic:

This one from Joyfoolery:

And this one from Free Style Creating By Villy:

Here's even a great Youtube video by GiannyL on how to convert and old skirt into a bag!

 (GiannyL has several great videos showing clothes upcycles!

Now some other things made from skirts:

Here's a skirt made into an apron by Don't fear the Ripper:

Second Chances By Susan came up with these great refashions of skirts into a top and a dress:

And here - All Things Reconsidered repurposed some old skirts into tablecloths!

A few more skirt upcycling projects can be found on on my
