Refashion shorts into a DIY skirt with godets

Got old shorts that don’t look good? Refashion them into this DIY skirt with godets, and you’ll start wearing it all the time! A great “new” garment for FREE!

I love skirts so much! They are fun to mix and match with different tops, I feel free to move around without any leg restriction, and even very casual skirts look nicer than jeans. They are SO FAST to sew and often even faster to refashion from other unused garments!

Take the above DIY skirt with godets. Can you believe that this garment used to be…

…this unfortunate pair of shorts? Ick!

I’d bought them because I really liked the contrast color waistband and belt loops. (Oh, and also because they were on a great clearance sale!) I hadn’t quite considered the fact that I don’t wear my tops tucked in, so those details could never be seen. And I soon realized that I didn’t like the way they felt or looked either. Then one hem started coming undone, and they stayed in my drawer for years.

Inspired by some of the amazing jean skirt refashioning ideas I’d saved onto my Refashioning Pinterest board, I decided to open up the legs and add contasting godet panels. Because the legs were on the tight side, and also because I really love this green batik fabric, I decided to add godets not only in the front and back, but also at the sides, that way I could easily create an A-line shape and make the contrasting panels look more intentional.

And I LOVE how it came out! It’s such a comfortable skirt and I love how it looks. I actually made this about a year ago and I’ve worn it a TON since then.

One of the great things about making your own clothing (or refashioning them) is that you can make perfectly matching accessories! So I sewed a twisted turban headband with the same batik fabric to wear along with my skirt! I love it when people ask me how I got an accessory to match my skirt so well, and I can tell them that it’s because I made them myself!

So, what do you say? Do you have some old shorts or pants that you never wear from one reason or another? Let me show you how to transform them into a DIY skirt with godets that you will want to wear all the time! Let’s get started! Read more

Non buttare i pantaloni dei bambini troppo corti o con ginocchia strappate! È facile trasformare pantaloni in pantaloncini in pochi minuti con il braccio libero della macchina da cucire!

Kids grow so quickly. Sometimes it feels like I've just sewn or otherwise procured a garment for my kids and it is already small for them. Or stained. Or ripped. That's why I love quick refashioning sewing hacks to make clothes for children as quickly as possible. Oh yeah, I also love saving money that way. And one of the most well-known … Read more

Cardigans are fantastic for layering clothing during in-between seasons. Learn how to refashion a sweater into a cardigan with one simple cut and two strips of fabric in just 10 minutes! Super easy!

I really love cotton sweaters. I do some knitting, so I should love wool like most knitters do, but I just love the way a cotton sweater feels (that is, not itchy), and also how much easier it is to wash them (that is, toss it in the washing machine on a gentle cycle with no fear of accidentally felting it). So when I found this cotton … Read more
