Hi,

Been browsing about these boards for a little while now and I thought I would join in the fun.

I bought a couple of old shirts at the thrift store up the road a few weeks ago, and just a few days ago my new mother-in-law lent me her pfaff sewing machine. I thought I would try my hand at this recon business.

So, basically one red and one black large mens t-shirts became this skirt:

Thanks, it was great fun to do. Had no pattern so just had to wing it, but I guess thats the way of these recons right?  Smiley

It was a perfect project for a cold rainy Danish afternoon. Grin
