Christmas Crushed Velvet Skirt

I hope all of you had a very Merry Christmas and spent time enjoying time with family! I wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year!

DSCN0653This is the dress I had used last year to refashion for Refashion Runway Season 4: All Stars. I used the top half back then and I had kept the bottom scrap for a later date.

Well, that later date was Christmas this year! Crushed velvet seems to be a hot item this year, so I decided to use this scrap and jump on the bandwagon!

DSCN1436Here is the bottom half of the dress. It was perfect to finish in to a skirt, it just needed some elastic for the waist.

DSCN1437I folded over the top of the skirt just enough to be able to cover the elastic. I left a 1 inch gap so I could thread the elastic through. I sewed it up later..

DSCN1439Used my trusty Bodkin to thread through the elastic. I know I have said this before, but this is just the handiest little tool!

DSCN1441I sewed the elastic together, overlapping by about 1 1/2 inches.


I stitched up the 1 inch hole I left open to thread the elastic through.


I am so thankful that I was able to spend such a wonderful Christmas with my hubby and amazing parents! I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas holiday filled with family and friends!

Happy Refashioning!!!

  1. Hi ! It’s a very nice skirt ! I love dark velvet like this one ! I’ve had a beautiful Christmas with all my family too but, i see behind you on the photo, this is snow!! I would give everything to have snow for Christmas. Here in Belgium, every year, the weather is too hot.. 😢 What a chance!! See you soon ! Bye! Elodie.

    1. Hi! Thank you so much for the nice comment. I love the dark velvet as well, it was a lucky find! I’m so glad to hear you had a nice Christmas 🙂 We were very fortunate to have a white Christmas! It’s hard for me to imagine a Christmas without snow, even though I prefer warm weather!
