I believe that creativity is a powerful skill that can be practiced and developed. I hope my blog inspires you to find your very own "creative lment". ~LM
I enjoyed my first t-shirt-to-a-skirt-refashion so much I thought I would do it again – this time with a Denver Hayes t-shirt I found at Goodwill for only $1.50. That’s right kiddies – I made this cute skirt for less than the price of a coffee. I loved the trendy stripes and overall quality of the material – and when the price is that good, it’s easy to say YES!
Here’s my cat Bentley kindly weighing down the material in preparation for cutting. If I ever need to find him, all I need to do is lay down a piece of fabric and like magic, he suddenly appears lol It’s the funniest thing!
Since the material was not as stretchy as my previous project, I decided a few darts were needed in the back to help create some shape around some of my…hmmm…lady bits. I took a moment to crop the photo of my behind to save you from having to stare at it in it’s entirety (you’re welcome). No special design skills needed to do this, just make sure the darts are the same length and distance (from the side hem).
I found this project easier the second time around and I am starting to feel like my sewing skills are really coming along. The finishing touches on this version look even better – inside and out. At this rate, I expect I’ll have a whole closet of these by the end of the summer!
