I love this idea.  You look great in the skirt and it has just the right amount of drape to it.  It hangs beautifully!

Good job!

yea u could use womens too but i have a "thing" for mens button downs i dunno why!
i left one of the button openings in the waist band open and sewed the rest shut.  The one I left un-sewn i put in a couple of hooks and eyes....i was too lazy to do a zipper.  You can do pretty much anything you want!

This skirt is genious! Thanks so much for posting the directions and the finished project...I went right out and got two shirts at the thrift store and voila! Now I have my very own cutie little skirt!  Smiley

I'm trying to decide what to do with the leftover shirt part...I was thinking maybe some bandanas for working in the yard this summer, or for my dogs.  Anyway, thanks again for a GREAT idea!  Grin

ive been looking around this site for a few months but this is the first thing ive seen that i MUST reply to.  This skirt is adorable and it looks great on you.  Im making one and i want to add a lace trim to the bottom...what do you think?

Just a thought, for any of the more zaftig craftsters out there, and particularly for my Amazonian self, I'm thinking more than 4 sleeves would be neccessary.  Or at least use larger shirts to start with.

Such, such, such a good idea. I'm going to do something like it tonight... but I'm hoping to make it look like this(generally speaking, I just want the pleated part and top band to be similar to this.):


We'll see how it turns out, thanks for the inspiration!
