T-shirt to skirt



I've been really into wearing skirts lately. As in, I'd rather wear a skirt than shorts or any other piece of clothing, really. However, due to budgetary constraints, I cannot throw out all of my other clothes and buy 10 skirts. That, and its probably not at all practical to get rid of ALL of my other clothes.


E and I have recently started a pile of clothes designated to go to the thrift store. It almost pains me to get rid of that much extra fabric. But, all of my castoffs would do more good in the original form of shorts, jeans, or dresses than they would do sitting in my sewing drawer.

I did save a few pieces, though, to play around with. I kept the above t-shirt. Its a bit snug in the chest region, but I figured I could fashion something out of it.

Wa-la. A skirt! (thanks to O's photography.)

Here it is again.

I may try to scavenge the pile again to see what else I can fashion into a skirt. E's work shirts maybe?

That is adorable! And also, I am very jealous of your tan shapely legs. With each baby, my waist seems to return eventually, but my thighs resemble sausages more and more! :)

Can I just copy and paste some of your posts on to my blog? Just kidding! We seem to have similar babies- rashy, spitty, needy babies. I've been doing the dairy-free thing since a week or so after she was born but she is still having digestive troubles. It can't last forever, right?
