Title: Man's button-down into an A-line skirt and circle scarf
Post by: jamina on July 21, 2011 04:05:11 PM


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!

That looks really nice with the scarf.

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.
