Lately I’ve been doing a lot of running around on my days off but that doesn’t mean I can’t look cute doing it!
Part 1: I took this awesome striped men’s shirt and turned it into a skirt!
Let’s get sewing!
I cut the shirt just under the sleeves. Then I measured my waist and cut 3/4inch elastic to size. I folded over the top of the shirt to make a casing for my elastic. Making sure I left a 2 inch space to thread in my elastic! After getting my elastic in place I sewed it together and closed the 2 inch gap. Then I sewed along the buttons so there would be no oopsies. No one needs their shirt skirt flapping open when out in public!
Part 2: I obviously need a top for my new skirt. I had another $3 polo in my stash that needed some help.
First the collar needed to go! This shirt will forget that it once was a polo shirt! I removed the buttons and put them in my button stash for a later date. I folded over the front into a v-neck and sewed it in place. Now my favorite part: a little pocket detail! A little bit of lace and a button!
I wore my new outfit out to do my grocery shopping!
