I've been inspired by some of the crafty blogs I read to repurpose thrift store finds into something cute and wearable; both for me and my girls. So I came across this tutorial from Sew Much Ado on how to make a kid's ruffled skirt out of an adult shirt.
First stop: thrift store!
There was a special on this day: fill a bag with any clothes for $5. So all of this cost $5!! Six lady's shirts. I used five of them for skirts and the white one served as the ruffles.
Next stop: sewing machine!
Final destination: look at this cuteness!!!
(Note the flower on this one above. It was a bedazzled piece on the chest of the shirt. I cut it out and transferred it as an iron on to the skirt.)
(I LOVED this shirt above and was really hoping I could make it a skirt for me, but alas, my legs are too long.)
