Today's Outfit - Infinity Scarf: An Easy Refashion Project

This was a much longer skirt that no longer fit me, so I cut and hemmed to make it shorter and trimmed some off the width and used the scrap from the bottom to make a matching infinity scarf.  I've got a few more skirts lined up to do similar projects with, but just haven't gotten around to it yet.  I had planned on re-donating them, but thought I'd practice on them since they're were so inexpensive and I'm a novice seamstress.  If I mess them up and they become unwearable it's no big loss.  But maybe some (like this one) will turn out okay enough to get a little more wear out of.  I may also make some flower pins/clips out of some of the scraps as well.  Just kinda fun to play around with.

Thrifted Items:  Skirt, sweater, brown boots $6.99.
Bracelet = $8.80 Forever 21
Earrings = Target


  1. What an adorable outfit! Was the infinity scarf easy to do? Your sense of color and proportion is amazing.

    1. Super easy. Once I cut off the bottom of the skirt it was already in a circle, so I just folded the length over and sewed the long open side together and that was it! Then just double looped it around my neck.
      I've got several more waiting for me to do. And I can wear them with other outfits as well, not just the coordinating skirt one.

  2. Great idea to use the extra for a scarf! Cute outfit!

  3. Your scarf and skirt are beyond adorable! XO Lori
