What do you do when an unflattering shirt design happens to beautiful fabric? Well, if you're me you turn that frumpy shirt into a skirt (do you see it? I don't even have to make a ruffle). But only if it's on the clearance rack for 75% off....score!
This is the shirt BEFORE I got to it. I'm sure it would look perfectly fine on a girl who's 5'11'' and 102 lbs. But some of us need a bit of structure to our clothes.
I just cut out the skirt silhouette, sewed up the sides and then sewed on a stretchy band on the top.
(when you have 3 kids at your ankles you don't have time to fuss with zippers or button holes)
And for the stretchy top I just cut up an old T-shirt I wasn't using.
It's so easy you can do this all on Sunday morning and be wearing the skirt to church.
Well, so I hear anyways :)
And I paired it with these cute heels I found (on a major sale) in NY.
Hooray for Liberty! Go check your Target clearance rack and you just may get lucky...mine had quite a few to choose from.
