First of all, I have to say I am no seamstress. I took one sewing class a long time ago, and so I just kind of take what I know, and make up the rest. So please do not look to closely, I know I have a lot of mistakes! Also Since I was trying to figure out how to make this skirt for the first time on my own, I didn't do a full tutorial. I will still try to walk you through what I did. I know I found this on someone's blog at one time, but I couldn't find it when it was time to make it. So here is my version!
Turn this old shirt into
a cute new skirt for your little one!
First thing I did was cut the bottom of the shirt, and that part was going to be my skirt. Next I sewed up the opening of the shirt (where the buttons would open). I then sewed up the sides so there wasn't much of a high dip on the sides.
Before I added the elastic I sewed the lace along the bottom.
(The lace I used was from an old baby dress of mine, when I find a picture, I will post it!)
The flower on the skirt was not sewn on the skirt, it was on a clip for my daughters hair
Last step was to add the elastic and sew it together.
Of course I had to make a matching flower for my daughter's hair. I used the same tutorial I used HERE only this time I used cotton instead of a silk fabric.
I hope to make one more skirt just like this, and when I do I will post a better tutorial for you! It is pretty easy though, and I am sure an actual seamstress could whip this up in no time! I will also post totally cute pictures of my daughter wearing her new skirt, when I can get her to sit still for a moment!
