People often give me materials that they think could be reused, and I'm always happy to accept them because it makes me eternally grateful that they thought twice before throwing them "away."
I was given 6 men's shirts (size M) one day. Used, but still in great condition. I wasn't in a hurry to get to them because they could still be donated and reused in their original form. I didn't, however, have a place to store them at the time, so they kept floating around the workshop, being moved from one place to another. One day I sat beside them, analyzed their qualities for a bit, and then something just clicked. I thought to button two shirts together to make a big skirt. I chose 2 shirts that combined well together and hurriedly buttoned them together as I ran to the mirror to try it on.
I had a good laugh when I saw the result because I actually really liked it and it took shape in less than 1 minute!
I dared to wear it out the next day and someone pointed out that the group next to us was admiring my skirt. I was definitely surprised, but also inspired to say that maybe one day I'll make a tutorial for it. So, here we are...
Let me know what you think! Would you rock it? Do you have any ideas for how to take it up a notch?
+2 short sleeve men's shirts (see next step for how to select size and other details)
+shoelace or other material for tying, which preferably comes to a point like a shoelace (will not be visible)
