Shirt Skirt




Easy peasy shirt-skirt. All I did was slice a long shirt in half. I didn’t cut it straight because I wanted the back part to be slightly longer. Then made a seem on the top of the skirt part, pulled through a string (that I quickly made from some left over leather) et voila! Now let’s hope for some sun! Fingers crossed!

  36. Yth says:

    The skirt looks so simple and beautiful. I hope you didn’t throw away the upper part of the shirt, by the way. In the second picture it looks just fine as a crop top, or the collar could be made into a detachable collar…. hmm possibilities possibilities, but I’m sure you could come up with much better solutions than me πŸ™‚
