Make Your Own Snow Skirt From an Old Jacket

OK, all my friends and family still dwelling in the clutches of old man winter, here’s a fun sewing project to help keep your buns warm and look great at the same time.


Make a cute snow skirt from an old jacket.

Don’t you just love this label!


My fun and stylish friend, Linda, found this old “jaquette” at our thrift store and was inspired to create a cute snow skirt to wear to the upcoming Snow Blast at Anthony Lakes Ski Resort in March.


We headed up those 32 studio steps together and she let me photograph her process so I could share it with you.

To thank you, once again for taking the time to go over to this tutorial, I’d like to give another copy of my new book The Refashion Handbook to one of you. All you have to do to enter is pin the tutorial to one of your Pinterest boards and make a comment.

The Refashion Handbook

The winner from last week’s Look Cooking-Show Chic in This Apron Made From an Old Shirt post is…


Maggie Ragatz! Congratulations and send your address to and I’ll send it to you ASAP!

I also have another huge favor to ask of you. If you have read The Refashion Handbook and you haven’t had a chance to write a five star review over on Amazon, my family and I would be forever in your debt if you would take the time to write one. The magical Amazon algorithms love five star reviews. The more a book has, the more they promote the book. Thank you so much for all of your support and encouragement!

    I thought it was a cute alteration for a young girl. Keep up the good work.

  4. Love the purple tights and colorful boots. You’re really kickin’ it today, girlfriend!

  5. I have never heard of a ski skirt! Very fashionable – If it snows here it’s only about an inch or so and we act all crazy……….even the ladies who go to churches where they are only supposed to wear skirts, don’t wear skirts on those days so you have brave women out there! 🙂

    Pinned and commented on! What a wonderful way to reuse a jacket that you aren’t going to wear anymore, but that still has life left in it!

  7. So adorable. It really helps she is the perfect size for this snow skirt. I REALLY love the the button up leg warmers. I better search the tutorial for those. They look like the perfect fit for any leg. 🙂 i am really enjoying your ideas. With the weather her in California…I need a sun hat tutorial. Happy sewing!

    We have long cold winters here and I have been meaning to sew some winter skirts. One of these is going to show up along with some wool festival skirts when I start my winter sewing this year!
