I got this size large man's shirt from Goodwill and upcycled it into an A-line skirt. I used the scraps to make a circle scarf. I added some flower detailing with random fabric I had lying around. All in all the whole thing probably took 30 minutes!

I would have never thought to make a skirt that way, but it turned out really cute. Way to be creative!

The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. . . . I would rather have cheese.

So cute!!! I have been wanting to turn a men's button down into a pencil skirt for a while, but I haven't found the right shirt yet. I will definitely have to go see what goodwill has to offer. Thanks for the inspiration! Now, hopefully, I will finally get around to doing it.

I will happily do personal swaps for beads, buttons, and fat quarters!
