I loved this simple idea on how to make a skirt from a sweater. You take a sweater (I bought this one at Salvation Army) and cut it below the arms and make a hem, just wide enough for elastic. I used a sewing machine. After putting the elastic through the hem, sew it together and you have a really cute skirt! The hem is not straight, but that’s okay, as you won’t see the top if you wear a sweater over it.
