Mens Shirt to Skirt

I helped my super cute sis in law make a skirt from a mens shirt. We went to the thrift store and found an uber cheap shirt, and started cutting away! We found a couple of really great tutorials to give us some sort of direction, one of my favorites was this one. Going off of that tutorial, I just kinda made it up as we went!


We cut as close to the edges when taking off the sleeves 
so we had as much fabric as possible to play with for around the hips.


Same with the length, we cut across the back at the seam, 
and cut the front even with the back at the top. 


We used the extra fabric from the sleeves along with the cuffs for the waist band, 
and we put them together something like this for the front opening of the skirt.

Here is how it turned out:

  3. Way cute! You are totally cooler then me. I want to figure out something to do with one of Brad's shirts or pants for Leah, but I'm not sure what. (I'm making a big quilt out of all his clothes) I was thinking a pillow or a wall hanging or a teddy bear? ? You're crafty. If you think of any cool ideas, let me know.
