Men's Shirt to Skirt

You've probably seen "men's shirt to skirt" tutorials on Pinterest and that is exactly not where I found the tutorial to make this skirt. I actually googled "men's shirt to skirt" and his was the eighth result on the page. I picked it because I liked the way it looked better than all the results ahead of it and I had a skirt that I thought would make a good template.

The tutorial is right here:

I loved the tutorial. A LOT of pictures and just enough written instructions that I knew what I was supposed to be doing if was confused by a picture. Does anyone else do that? I know I can't be the only crafter that goes mostly by pictures and not written instructions.

Before I started I managed to snap one quick before picture so I actually have what will pass as a before/after photo for this project! Now, let me explain a little. The shirt/skirt is 100% cotton mint chambray. NOT WHITE! My camera kind of decides to make each picture a different color which can be a cross between amusing and frustrating, depending upon what I'm trying to take a picture of. Pardon the wrinkles on the skirt and scraps in the background. I had literally just finished sewing. Excuse the sock as well. That diffuses the flash so I don't get a glare across the mirror. So professional. Anyway, less writing, more picture.


And, just an example of what I mean about my camera sort of having a mind of its own when it comes to the color of each picture, here's a lovely yellow-orange tinted photograph. Hello 1973!
