Refashioning - Skirt to Shirt

I spent the weekend working through my pile of clothes I've collected for refashioning/dyeing - my idea of fun!  A really good source of unique fabric is large sized skirts.  This was a size 28 skirt in a gorgeous, soft cotton from India.


I cut it open at the back seam (the only seam, so it gave me a lot of fabric to work with) and then used Butterick 5948 to cut out the pieces for a loose, drapey shirt.



It's so comfortable, it's already one of my new favorite shirts!

Happy Creating!  Deborah
