@Dareebs:  I wanted to do this to mine, since I have the color in my skirt.. But my seamstress told me that it wouldn’t work because of the train 🙁

ETA: But I’d LOVE to see someone that did do it!

@Dareebs:  I’ve never heard of this either, but it’s a neat idea!  I wouldn’t do it because we always get real trees and there’s always a mess of needles, sap, and water all over.  If we had fake trees I would definitely consider it.

@Dareebs:  I’ve never heard of that before. I think I might have to go Google.

I’ve never heard of this. What a cute idea!

I think this is such a fun and unique idea!

Here’s my two cents (and it’s a bit of a downer)… our cat, at some point when she was a kitten, marked the christmas tree skirt as her territory and for a while she used it as a litter box. We had to toss it!
So I’d suggest doing it only if you’re OK with pet stains and water stains getting on the tree skirt (I suppose you’d have to get it cleaned if something like that happens)

Other than that, I think it would look so glamarous.

I love that idea!  But I would probably have the material dyed another color because after a few years the white would be dingy and porbably stained.

Ya know.. I was thinking about the logistics of this… Would it work? Don’t the dresses taper? I dont think the skirt would lay flat, would it? I don’t think mine would o_O maybe I’m nuts.. Also.. Bump!
