Pretty flowery skirt into shirt

A friend of mine recently cleaned out her closet and asked if I’d like the clothes she was getting rid of…so, of course, I couldn’t resist!

Here’s the first item. I chose to refashion this one first because the print was so pretty.


First, I needed to remove the elastic waistband.



Now, I flipped the skirt upside down to use the wider portion on top. I made two small zig zag stitches on top creating a neckline and two sleeves.



See the new neckline?


Next, I folded the fabric over twice on the bottom of the new shirt, pinned in place and hemmed.



And 15 minutes from start to finish…I have a new flowery shirt!
