Ruffled Shirt To Skirt

I got this ruffled shirt at a benefit rummage sale.
As soon as I saw it I knew I was going to make a skirt out of it.
My daughter Emily was with me and she said that I was a little too
excited when I picked it up.
What can I say...this is about as exciting as my life gets!


I cut off the top and got to work.


I folded over the top to create the casing for the elastic.


Sewed the casing leaving an opening for the elastic.


Then threaded the elastic through.

Voila! A new skirt to wear to church tomorrow!
I love it!

You would never know it used to be a size 14/16 ruffled shirt.
It will be our secret! :)
