I loved the ruched sleeves of the gray shirt, but the hole-y bottom hem had to go. I made a skirt out of the men's shirt by cutting it out like so.
I sewed it along the side seams into more of an a-line shape. I sewed it with right sides together until I got to about 3 inches from the top edge. Then I flipped it right-side out and sewed the rest of the seam with the wrong sides together. This made it so that I could fold down the top few inches and have a waist-band of sorts on the dress. I joined the skirt to the shirt like so.
And here is how it looks with the waistband folded down.
Pretty comfy. Thanks for reading.
