Men's Shirt to Cute Skirt - Easy

Refashion of Men's shirt to cute Skirt!

I saw this men's shirt at a flea market.

 


Once I saw the $1 price tag I feel in love with it, well at least the fabric.  


I had to have it!!  I had not clear idea of where I was going with it.  I was not only new to sewing garments at the time, but also completely new to refashion.

So I took my little prize home and decided on a skirt.  With no clear direction of what to do I started cutting and sewing.  




Until I ended up with this little diddy!  


Of course, I realize now it was very simple and not much to it.  But, at the time I felt like a million bucks and it did give me the inspiration to go on and try new things.  I've even taken an evening dress and made a belly dance hip scarf and bra (which I will post next).  I have even done that with a regular skirt set.

I now love thrifting to see what I can come up with next.  Even my friends bring me stuff because they believe I can see something out of any outfit.  I look forward to sharing and following others.

Thanks for reading my post!  I will also post specific details to Shimmy and More Blogspot, feel free to check it out anytime.

Love and Shimmies,

It's much nicer than the shirt! Elastic skirts are so comfortable and with those colours you can match it with black, white, blue or green - pretty versatile
