For both of these, I used this tutorial for the "Shirt Skirt." My friend Kim found it, and in an attempt to enable my sewing addiction, posted it to my Facebook page. I think I churned out the first skirt less than 24 hours later. And it was my easiest one yet.
I need to make like 35 of these. So fast. (Cut off the bottom of a shirt. Shir the top to make a waistband. You're done!) So comfy. So I-can-wear-this-on-my-chunkiest-day-and-still-feel-kinda-cute.
|Eh, who needs shoes?|
Then for $8 I bought a new men's white and grey stripped T-shirt from Marshall's. I know, spending $8 for a shirt to chop up is kind of weird. But it was worth it -- because I truly think I will wear this skirt practically every day this summer. It is that comfy.
|Staring wistfully out to sea.... well, Lake St. Clair anyway.|
Whether I finish that one or not, I will be making more of these for sure. And hey, to any "real life" friends reading! Come over and watch my kids, bring me the men's large shirt of your choice, and I'll make one for you, too!
So The Summer of No Pants can now commence. I'm ready!
Oh and wait, one more thing. Help me out with something. I thrifted this cute sherbert colored linen skirt for $1 and am questioning something.
