This blog has a ton of ideas for altering and refashioning clothes.

Hey Friends,

You may remember the old white skirt from a post a little while back.  I kept changing my mind on what I wanted to do with it, until I found some beautiful sequined tulle fabric at the swap meet in Huntington Beach.  I originally planned on sewing the tulle directly onto the skirt, but then I realized that it would be easier to make it a separate piece.  This also allows me to pair it with other skirts if I want to.sequin layout

To make the overlay, I first determined how long I wanted the tulle to be.
