|Hubs would have killed me if I used one of his, so this was $4.99 at my local Goodwill.|
A little nip and tuck, and an hour later I had this:
Here I am in an attempt to model my new skirt:
|It’s not easy to get an 8-year-old to take a clear photo!|
The only thing I did differently from the tutorial is that I didn’t make the belt loops. I used a 15×33 men’s shirt, and if I were to make this again I would probably look for a 16×35 (I normally wear a size 6 or 8 skirt) to have a bit of a fuller skirt and more sleeve length to work with for the belt/sash. I would also probably make the skirt a couple of inches shorter by cutting the waistband a little lower. I didn’t do it this time around because I wanted to keep the pocket in tact.

This is the CUTEST idea ever!!! Oh my gosh! My husband has so many old shirts that he doesn't wear anymore, looks like I'll be stealing them 🙂 I know you'd love this tutorial I posted today, it's taking an old shirt and an old dress and making a new dress! After seeing this, and that you like to sew, I think you'd like it. If you want to check it out, here's the link!
I found your blog from Dittle Dattle, so happy I did, I'm totally following you now!
I saw that cute tute too, I like how you did your belt and kept the pocket. I'll be trying this too when I get back from vaca. Great job,
This is so impressively cute! Great job!
I saw this idea a few days back and I immediately pulled out Hubs' discarded shirts. I just wrapped it around to get the feel but since I don't have a sewing machine I could not go any further. Waiting to be at Mom's place so that I can actually put this great idea to use.
Your skirt has turned out to be really good. Love the belt 🙂
So cute! I would love it if you would link this up!
