Here is the skirt before. It was a pretty simple black jersey skirt with a pretty crocheted border on the hem. I got it at Goodwill years ago. It was comfy but just not flattering. Oh and that's my new kitty Ringo..."He's so fluffy!"


Super simple idea. Here it is cut. What I learned from the first attempt was to measure the sleeves. my arm is 12" around and i measured just that knowing the jersey would stretch. Also be sure to put the skirt on like a poncho first to mark where you want the sleeves to start.

Then just sew up the sides and down the sleeve.

Here is the finished product. It came out pretty cute and it is so comfy. The perfect thing to wear snuggled up on the couch with a good book.

What am I pointing at? Don't know just wanted to show the sleeves.

This is so cool. I love the look of the new shirt ^_^ And it's the opposite of the usual in that you usually see shirts and pants turned into skirts, but here you've gone and turned a skirt into a shirt instead Smiley

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.
