When Emily from Blu Babes Create happened upon a picture of a skirt made out of a men’s button-down shirt at Grosgrain, she knew she had to make one for herself.  She searched and searched for a tutorial but couldn’t find one, so she took a stab at it on her own.  She came up with fabulous results, and a tutorial!  If you don’t have a long-sleeve shirt on hand, I think this would also look cute if you used a necktie for a belt instead of the sleeves.  [how to turn a men’s shirt into a skirt]

Project estimate:

  • Men’s long-sleeve, button-down shirt, on hand or $1 and up
  • Sewing machine, on hand

Total:  Free and up
