I am not a brand girl when it comes to clothes. I mean, of course I have brands I love, and there are many that fall into my aesthetics with their lines, but I am not obsessed to have the latest pieces and certainly do not follow fashion blindly. Oh, and the most important thing - I am not keen on spending lavishly on clothes.
Having seamstresses in the house meant a lot of handmade clothes - and I much more preferred having something made according to my design, something original than buy something that comes in batches.
So when talking handmade, the next best thing I love as much as sewing clothes is refashioning them.
Having done a lot of refashioning and not always documenting it anywhere, I've decided to have a refashioning series here on my blog where I will share things I refashion myself and inspiration for doing so.
So for today I chose lace skirts. Skirts are so easy to refashion. Especially if you have some old lace and ribbons, maybe a couple of buttons and some trims and voila! You have a new skirt!
The first image shows an absolutely amazing skirt made of three layers of different lace in both design and color.
This one shows center lace flounces added to a silk skirt.
A simple cotton skirt can be transformed into this by adding zig-zagging lace ribbons ...
or make it quite unique by adding a lace border.
