Turtleneck to Maxi Skirt Tutorial October 1, 2013 – Posted in: girls clothes, money saving tips, sewing, skirt, upcycled
This one has been a long time coming! I finally got some cute pics of my daughter in her maxi skirt so that I could finish up this post! Last spring, when I was on my maxi skirt sewing kick, my 5yo had requested a RED one. Well, I thought I would just pick some fabric up at a nearby Walmart, but they no longer carry ANY knit at that store! 🙁 So, I wandered over towards the clothing and found a Women’s XL red turtleneck on clearance for $1!

Sew the side seams of the skirt, right sides together. You can use a zig-zag or stretch stitch or a serger. I used a stretch stitch and then overlocked the edges for extra durability.
