Tiered Skirt Refashion

My mother in law gave me a bunch of her old clothes to either sell, get rid of, or keep. Included in the pile was this tiered maxi skirt with a super cute western print.

Love the cowboys and the color!

I don’t ever wear maxi skirts, so at first I thought I would cut it and just have a shorter skirt, but after I cut the bottom tier off I realize there was enough to make a top with! These tiered skirts are so fully gathered that once you cut and iron the layers, you have way more than you thought you would. 

Look at all that fabric that was in the bottom layer!

I decided on a Rita blouse from Gertie’s Charm patterns line. It’s a fitted peasant blouse with a side zip and it’s so so easy to whip up!

Mine is signed by Gertie herself!

It took about three days with the limited time I have available, and voila! A cute outfit to wear to my boys’ western themed dance tonight!

I’m so pleased with how it turned out!
