My husband got rid of this pink gingham men’s button up shirt, and all I could think about was how cute it would be as a skirt!
It’s getting hot so my daughter wants more skirts to wear to keep cool. I remembered this shirt and how easy it would be to turn into a skirt!
Turning a men’s shirt into a skirt is a quick project, and the result is so good. You get to reuse some of the original details that elevates the skirt up from a basic skirt.
– men’s button up shirt – any size – 1 inch elastic – safety pin – sewing tools – sewing machine
Lay the shirt out flat. Start by cutting through the shirt just below the armpits. You can mark and cut with scissors or you can use a ruler, cutting mat, and rotary cutter.
Make sure you are cutting between buttons instead of through a button.
Place the cut edge of the button placket together where is should got and sew it in place.
