Shirt to …..

I’m up early today, so very early.  Due to various circumstances too numerous to get into, nearly my entire family have become insomniacs.  So no matter how late it is, at least someone is awake and roaming.  And since I’m up and about, I thought I should post this early in the morning as opposed to late into the night.

As promised in my shirt to dress post (See Talk About a Shirt-Dress),  here’s something that can also be made from a shirt, a skirt.  I found the tutorial here at instructables, although in the tutorial they used a flannel shirt for warmth.  I think here in Arizona I would have no trouble staying warm.  I used a cotton men’s shirt that I salvaged a few months ago.  It wasn’t too hard to make, although I found the fitting part in Step 3 to be awkward.  When I finished it, it was fairly long on me and I could have left it as is, but I decided to cut it down to a mini and hem it.  Now I have a cute little skirt that works great in most weather conditions, what’s not to love.
Here’s the updated list:
  • hangers
  • bed
  • mirror
  • dresser
  • skirt
  • pocket
  • lamp
  • night stand
  • wardrobe
  • rug
  • framed art
  • curtains
Five down, seven to go.  The next one will be up tomorrow, don’t miss it.
