Restyle: Ombre Maxi Skirt

Wow!  It's the last day of our 30 Days of Restyle for PFF already...  This August has just zoomed by.  
Here we leave you with my most involved DIY garment of the whole project.  We hope you've enjoyed the 30 days as much as we have!

As you can see, I was totally in the mood for some ombre lace.  Thank goodness Restyle gave me a reason to do it!

DIY Details
Once again I raided the home furnishings section of Good Sammy's to find some lacy material.  This ombre maxi skirt was fashioned out of a tablecloth, which I pleated to fit the waistband and then painted.  It took many tubes of fabric paint and multiple trips to Spotlight and Lincraft!  (wear it with this and be an ombre-hombre).

  6. this is so beautiful. what fabric dye did you use for this and did you have a particular technique? i love how your colors are super blended and don't have obvious lines where your different layers of color are.

    1. Hi Kim!

      The details are above in the section headed "DIY Details" - it was fabric paint and me painstakingly brushing it on so there wouldn't be any lines. So glad you like it!
