skirt refashion

I've been reading about refashioning a TON on the internet (namely the forty or so blogs I stalk daily) and as really excited to try my hand at it!  I would have liked to refashion something of mine that I didn't use anymore, but seeing as I recently purged a GIANT amount of unused clothing to Goodwill, there wasn't much left in my closet to choose from.  (which got me wondering what exactly I had given away that might have been of use.....didn't I have a really cool wrap skirt in fall colors?  Dang it!  That would have made an adorable dress....oh well!)  So one lazy Sunday we ventured in to the local Goodwill to see what we could find....if I can get past the smell of old junk, I am just fine.  Ninety nine percent of the stuff is worthless, but every once in a while you come across something pretty cool.  My husband actually found this women's skirt for me....
...which was lined and everything!  I liked the colors, so for two bucks we were on our way home with a big 'ol skirt that turned into this for Hayden:
I really wish I'd taken a picture of her IN it, rather than it just laying on my craftroom floor, because it is much more adorable ON a human.
