Recycle, Reuse: old tops = bodycon skirts

Okay… Three more items were ticked off my list of things to do. Yey!

I had these cheap shirts which prints I adore. But they didn’t fit me as well as I had hoped. So, I decided to tun them into skirts instead. TDSC02639The above photo is crappy, I concur. Moving on… To make the skirts, I snipped off the upper part of the shirts, cutting just below the armholes. And because the shirts fit me just right, I didn’t need to take in the sides of the skirts to shape them. I simply folded the top edge of each skirt to make the waistband casing. Then, I threaded an elastic through the casing. And, voila! The shirts are now skirts.

Turning a shirt into a skirt is very easy to do. It won’t take so much of your time either. So, the next time you find it difficult to part with your favorite (printed) shirt, you can simply turn it into a skirt!
