DIY Convertible Bubble Skirt & LINK PARTY!!!!!

OK so after doing the bubble necklace I'm stuck on the Bubble thing! I know!

But there is something just whimsical and playful about bubbles that takes you back to your innocent childhood.
Plus Bubble skirts have been a major trend for a while now. and according to my mall walks, they aren't leaving anytime soon.

Meet the new addition to my closet inspired by this set.


Plus "Make my Style Monday" Link Party.......


Before: an Old Maxi dress

with one slight problem: a shortage of fabric below


After: A New trendy Bubble skirt


only takes 5 steps and it's NO SEW!!!!!
Materials:

ribbon, fabric glue, scissors, a maxi dress

Step 1: cut the the maxi dress at the top of the waist band. Try not to cut any of the seams. turn the skirt inside out.



Step 2: Cut your ribbon into 6 4-inch strips and glue them to the bottom inside edge of the skirt. only glue the sides of the ribbon. let dry!
You can also use thin ribbon for this.


Step 3: cut your your thin ribbon about a foot long. cut two slits inside the the waist band a half inch apart. slide the ribbon through the slits and knot the ribbon. repeat across the entire waist band


Step 4: Take your top ribbon strips and tie them around your bottom ribbon strips. let them hang as long as you wish.

Step 5: Turn your skirt to the right side. add a shirt, shoes and some accessories. Be Fabulous!

  10. I like this idea. I might have to try it. I was looking to make one of those dresses that have a tank on the top, and this skirt would look cute on the bottom. Thanks for inspiring me.
