Polo Shirt to Skirt Refash

DSCN0390
First of all Happy Very Belated Mother's Day to all you mothers! :)
This refash was done so I could wear something for my mom's Mother's Day celebration! We took my mama to Belle Isle in Detroit, where we visited the Aquarium, Conservatory, Lighthouse and Detroit Boat Club. (For those of you non-Michiganders: Belle Isle is a Michigan State Park that has recently been restored to it's former glory! It's and island in the Detroit River connected to downtown Detroit by a bridge).

I started by removing the pocket (I saved it to reattach it later).

Cut just below the sleeves.

Measured a piece of 1 inch elastic to my waist size.

Sewed the casing for the elastic.
Then threaded the elastix through with my bodkin!

Pinned and sewed on the pocket!

One of my favorite refashions! Turning a shirt into a skirt! My closet is full of refashioned skirts. Great save.
