|My pretty shirts! Oh I have plans for you!|
I had seen this shirt-skirt floating around Pinterest and decided to give it a go. I loved the arms belt but didn't end up incorporating it into my skirt for 2 reasons - firstly my girth did not allow it (sad) and secondly when I tried to fashion the arms to even LOOK like a belt, my son told me it looked silly.
Here's how I did it.
First up I unpicked the sleeves. You can skip this, in fact in hindsight if I -had- skipped it I may have had my belt as I could've cut it straight across.. but anyway. I unpicked them and it took me forever.
|Almost wanted to keep it as a vest.|
|I miss you, rotary cutter.|
|I was able to sew white on the white line to camouflage it a bit.|
|Love my cute pins. Problem is, my kids love them too.|
|Oh Cobes, you are cute, but I think I can come up with a more permanent solution.|
Using this tutorial from Green Kitchen (and without destroying another pair of pants, just traced around) I used the sleeves from the shirt and quickly whipped him up some new, very rough, PJ pants. Awesome!
|Pretending he's asleep. Because that's what you do in PJ pants.|
1 shirt refashion down, 6 to go! :D
