Old Clothing Gets a Second Life
After: Bubble Skirt
A tailor can turn a full, flowy style into an of-the-moment bubble skirt by sewing at the hem a tunnel wide enough to contain
an elastic cord (one about ¾ inch thick will be the most comfortable). You’ll probably need to be present during the process
so he can adjust the tightness.
Cost: under $45.
