My favorite thing to do is scope the shorts section at the Salvation Army for exceedingly hideous elastic-waist shorts and then turn them into skirts! So here's a ton of skirts I made from shorts, and a quick tutorial for you too!  Grin






And here's a tutorial!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

AHHH I love the skirt from what I can only assume was a pair of epic 90's floral shorts! I must find floral shorts ASAP!

What an awesome idea!  I love the tutorial, especially the wiggly "weird shorts"  LOL!  Those are so great.  Gotta do some!

Wow, the awesome thing about this is that you make those skirts look classy. Nobody would ever guess someone that hott walking down the street had made those clothes from hand-me-down shorts.
