This is the first skirt I have ever made without a pattern and first at attempting to reconstruction one.

The waistband/top of the skirt is made out of this holey pair of sweat shorts:

The 2nd tier is from my son's too small jeans:

The 3rd tier is from my son's too small button down shirt (sorry, don't have before pic).

I wanted to make it a little offbeat so I intentionally did not line up the seams and left the buttons from the shirt on the fabric for an added embellishment.

It looks wicked comfortable!! I've always wanted to make a skirt similar to that but always thought I'd mess it up, lol. Great job!

Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don't complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don't bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality . Wake Up and Live!
