Found this shirt at a thrift shop in my college town. Not a flattering shirt, but an awesome skirt. Zipper was a bit difficult. The fabric kept running like pantyhose do. Looks okay though.

Here's the shirt before. I forgot to take a picture before I did anything, so this is after I made the first cut through the middle.



And this is the final project. Sorry 'bout the shower background!





Now, all I have to do is make a shirt to match!  Grin

yes a lot better fabric for a skirt than a shirt.   Great recon Smiley

Good job!  Much nicer as a skirt.

I agree. Too much pattern for a shirt. Just enough pattern for the skirt. Very cute. A nice coral (or is it orange?) color halter top might be nice.

That makes such a cute skirt! Kudos for recognizing that awful shirt's potential! Looks like it fits really well, too.
