If you’re anything like me I get inspired at the last minute. I had this ill-fitting sequin top I thrifted for $5.00. I wore it once and the sleeves were so uncomfortable I tossed it in the clothing recycle bin until I had a brainstorm!!!πŸ’‘

I’ve been coveting a sequin skirt for weeks but quite frankly, I’m too cheap to buy one!!πŸ˜‚

Here’s what you’ll need

  1. A sequin t-shirt. Longer is better unless you’re into the micro mini look(I’m not) look for a lined one if possible as sequins can be scratchy
  2. scissors
  3. a sewing machine or needle andthread.


Honestly I wasn’t super particular about how I cut it. I knew I’d be wearing a long blouse or sweater over it so it’s not perfect and hey it cost $5!!!πŸ˜‚ The beauty of this whole thing is that the neckline of the shirt serves as the waistband. Try it on first over your waist first to be sure how long it will be.

I used an old knit skirt of mine as a pattern and just sewed the right sides together and finished with an overlock stich and voila there you go! 😍😍😍😍



So easy and now you’ll sparkle all night! Β I’ll post pics of how I styled it soon!!

You’re welcome!!πŸ˜‹

Happy New YearΒ !!πŸŽ‰βœ¨πŸ‘‘!πŸŽ‰βœ¨See you next year!!πŸ’‹
