As a California girl, I'm naturally short on winter-ready dresses. And considering how short our "winters" actually are, I'm reluctant to spend too much money on brand-new winter attire.
Using the second picture above as an inspiration, I attempted to make a cute ruffle dress out of three men's thermal/waffle shirts. I purchased the shirts for a total of $10 from my local Goodwill store and used sewing supplies I already had.
Step 1: Materials Needed
Three large or extra large thermal(waffle) men's shirts (at least two have to be of similar color)
Your best-fitting t-shirt or knit top
Your best-fitting pencil skirt
Shoe box top
Basic sewing supplies
--Chalk or fabric marker
