This Sassy Secretary Upcycled Skirt is the perfect way to dress office-appropriate with just a little bit of flair. By showing you how to alter a skirt by adding buttons to a plain khaki skirt, this cute piece will stand out. Looking vintage and modern at the same time, this skirt will help you channel your inner Peggy Olson or Joan Holloway. This would be a great skirt to keep around for your fall wardrobe, as well.

This clever update to a basic khaki skirt by adding a button front makes it great for a casual, back yard barbecue or up scaled for work or a day meeting friends for lunch after a morning of shopping. The connection to Lady Bird Johnson would be emphasized with a flowered top reminiscent of her wild flower projects. The bland skirt color works perfectly with a print of daisies or black-eyed Susans in a bright spring yellow.

This is one of the nicest redo's I have seen, Nice work.

Who named this project? Sassy Secretary---REALLY??????
