    Inspired by speeedkills http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=5789.0 I stopped at Goodwill this afternoon and picked up a couple mens' button down shirts. At $2.50 a piece, I wasn't complaining. With and idea in my head, I just started cutting and sewing away (a real flaw in the way I do things).
    This was my first attempt, sort of a trial, and I love the way it came out. Within the next week, I'll work on a white version, and add a tutorial. Anyways, I hope you like it, and I'll get that tutorial up asap!

Thanks you all <3

This weekend I'll add the tutorial. It's finals week at my high school, so I don't have a lot of extra time. But I'll add it shortly.  Cheesy

Noooo! you stole my idea!!! Sad

Haha, I kid. I was inspired by the same tutorial but when the first shirt I had was WAAAAYYY too thin (and highly stained I realized - AFTER GETTING IT HOME! >:[) to really do anything with, I ended up using just the one shirt.

Yours is so cute though I'm now thinking about adding pleats >:}

Ah, what a great idea! using a mens shirt for a skirt! I love yours. But imagine if you put buttons down the front! then a ruffle round the bottom. Yum....
