This is my first time posting on here!  I made this skirt awhile ago out of one of my dad's old collared shirts.  I left the hem intact which is why it's a little lower in the back than in the front.  I took in the sides, added elastic to the top, and added pockets out of extra fabric.  The edging on the pockets is from the collar!

i posted the pic for you.
I really like what you did with the lines on the pockets, its very flattering. i also like that it is longer in the back as my butt is always making skirts shorter than i think. I'm thinking of making a similar skirt but I don't think I could get the pockets to actually work.  good job!

Cute, I like the pockets. Skirts are a bit longer in the back anyways, by like 3/4 of an inch or so, because we have butts that cause it to be shorter. So, good job!
