Upcycled

imageKind of strange to say but I originally wore this skirt when I was a freshman in high school, I graduated 10 years ago! The reason I kept this skirt is because I love the fit so much. My advice is to keep anything you absolutely love the fit of because you’ll love it again when it comes back in style and simple updates to it can make it seem new again.  Originally, this skirt flared out at the bottom, but to give it an update I made the bottom slimmer for more of a pencil skirt silhouette.

I went to school for fashion merchandising and there was a big emphasis on the idea of up cycling and being environmentally friendly in many of my courses. I really believe in altering things you already have to create something new instead of going out and buying new things all the time.

I’ve included a before picture of the skirt!

Thank for reading!
