fashion: transforming a long sleeve shirt into a skirt!

so here is the story of a perfectly good long sleeve shirt.
i like the pattern, its basically brand new but i don't wear it.
why you ask? 
i bought it while i was post-partum and it doesn't particularly fit as nicely as it once did.
thank you weight loss!
so instead of relying on my ninja sewing skills, i wanted to re-purpose it into a skirt instead
transforming a long sleeve shirt into a skirt
so here's how:
transforming a long sleeve shirt into a skirt
 first step into your shirt
mine is v-neck but don't worry it won't look weird like that in the end
transforming a long sleeve shirt into a skirt
 hike the back of the shirt up over the booty so it's smooth looking
you want to avoid butt lumps especially if you don't have any!
transforming a long sleeve shirt into a skirt
 take the sleeves and tie them in a knot in the front
you could get fancy and tie them in a bow too!
transforming a long sleeve shirt into a skirt
now you are going to take the edges and tuck them under the sleeves which now makes it look like a belt or sash

 fiddle with the fabric till it looks right to you

now get dressed with your new skirt and accessorize as needed!

  1. A really cute idea, would be to wear a high waist skirt, tuck in your shirt, and wear a very thin belt around the waist of the skirt.
    its best if the waist of the skirt has a band.
