Detroit Tigers TShirt to Skirt

I started my work week with a bang! The office I work at got tickets to the 2nd to last home baseball game for the Detroit Tigers! gets even better....we got VIP suite tickets!!!
I originally wanted to turn this...
into a cute dress, but it got complicated. I had to switch my plans into making a skirt using the bottom half of this shirt.

Sewing the casing for the elastic waistband.

I threaded the elastic through and stitched up the hole!
Now this would be way to short as is so luckily JoAnn Fabrics has Tigers fabric on sale! 
I cut an 8 inch piece that I folded over to make a nice bottom for my skirt.

Pinned the fabric and sewed it to my skirt.

Then I finished it off with some navy bias tape!

I cut out 3 circles from the scraps to make a decorative flover. I cut the edges into flower petals and sewed it all together with a button!

Then I hot glued it to a jelwery pin.

I was lucky enough that my roomie gave me this awesome Tigers tank top to wear with my new skirt!!! I had to pair my new outfit with some leggins and an orange sweater because the weather was supposed to get down in the low 50s, pretty cold to watch a baseball game.

Round 1 of food!

Round 2: desert! Yumm!!

We played the White Sox and lost 3 to 2, but it was still an exciting game!

We had a good view of the fountain sponsored by Chevrolet that would spout off everytime the music played!

I had such a great night cheering on our Tigers in my new Tigers outfit!!! Can't wait until next season to wear it again!
