So I was messing around and I ended up making this skirt by accident.


Tute

1)Take the collar and fold it down. The first button should fold down with it

2)Now use the second button to button the top of your skirt

3)Button down the rest of your skirt

4)Now put you sleeves inside the skirt

EDIT: You may also sew the sleeves to make pockets and it'll be an almost no sew project. Thanks for the idea ScotSkipper402!

And there you have it! If anyone is crazy enough to try this please put up pics. And if there's something you don't understand in the tute just ask.

Really cool. If you sewed the sleeves shut, you'd have pockets. (So, almost no sew..._

it gives it a bit of a pooch in the crotch area, but in a pinch, you can tie the sleeves for pockets.  that's what I just did (the sleeves were hanging out.. i had to button at the third button Sad).  I'm on my way in my new skirt to buy more shirts to make more skirts!
