I bought my boyfriend transformers pj’s on clearance at Target for $4.98. He loved the t-shirt but the pants were a bit much. While I couldn’t argue with that, I love the fabric pattern. So I made them into this skirt using a modification of this tutorial  http://www.savvyseams.com/clothing/jeanskirt.php. And while sewing I got a chance to look closely at the fabric and it says creepy things like “extinction to traitors” and. “we all die someday”. The skirt came out super cute (if I say so myself). Status: pleased

It looks lovely  Smiley
I assume the creepy 'we all die someday' bits are movie quotes? I don't expect anyone will stop to read your skirt anyway!

Boldly going where others have probably been.

This rocks! It something that could be worn anywhere because you kind of have to look close to tell it is Transformers.
