Do you know what happens when you have fabric stash that's just getting to large to fit where it belongs? You start making clothes, even though you don't particularly like making clothes. Especially clothes that aren't particularly special and you could probably buy said clothes for almost the same amount of money.
But you make said clothes because 1) using the fabric would make one small step towards bringing order to the craft room again, 2) it provides an excuse to buy even more fabric and 3) the idea of back to school shopping with two wild monkeys is perhaps even less appealing than making clothing. Please tell me I'm not alone in this?
I've made a couple of skirts lately that I'll be blogging about over the next few weeks. This skirt was actually a really cheap and inexpensive one because it came from an old shirt from my hubby. (My hubby always seems to get holes in the elbows of his dress shirts....does this happen to anyone else?)
I throw any clothes that might have salvageable fabric into a big bag in a closet, promising that I'll use it sometime. Well, some of those clothes have been sitting in there for years now...so it was time to finally make something with one of them.
Do you need a sunshine shirt in your life? Lu loves the new addition to her wardrobe!
As I mentioned before, the main part of the skirt comes from the bottom of a men's dress shirt. The waist band just comes from the top of the back of the shirt (not shown).
Tada! All finished! What do you think?
