A shirtskirt! You can make one in 10 min with an old, oversized men´s shirt, a bit of thread and elastic band. Cut the shirt according to the desired length (stitch elastic at the top) and fold the top with elastic band. Sew the arms together to serve as a belt/sash and add a few belt loops from the excess fabric.
I made these skirts in high school, circa 1985, using t-shirts & sweatshirts. Cut out the neck (unless you're a skinny-mini), pull it up like a skirt and tie the arms of the sweatshirt in the front. T-shirt sew, or don't sew short sleeves and tuck in to use as pockets. D
Tutorial for re-purposing button down shirts to make skirts. What an adorable idea! Like the longer version she makes and how she turns it around with the buttons and longer tie in the back. Could make several of these for B to use at college next year.
