New Knit Skirt
On a recent trip to my favorite thrift store I purchased an x-large man's shirt. I cut out the sleeves and neck. I held up the skirt to make sure it was the length I wanted and then cut the top (where neck was) in order to shorten the skirt. With my trusty sewing machine I took in the sides in to what I felt was a comfortable fit and put in an elastic waistband. Then ta dah! A new skirt for summer. No hemming needed as the bottom of the shirt is now the bottom of the skirt.
I have worn the skirt several times already. The youngest likes how soft it is for getting water out of his eyes (oh the fun of running in the sprinkler.)
