A while back, I made a few of these skirts by sewing together thrifted men's shirt sleeves so that the wrist buttons create fasteners for the skirts. Do you remember this one from the summer time? Would you like a step-by-step tutorial on this method some upcoming DI(fr)Yday?
The best part of making these skirts is picking which shirts will go well together, like chambray with pastel pinstripes for a surprisingly prim and feminine take on wearing a men's shirt, or red and green plaid flannel with this amazing ski-resort-logo shirt that I was amazingly lucky to find one day at Goodwill.
I love skiing, so this skirt is pretty great for me, and what could be more Chistmasy. Yesterday I wore it pretty casually to run errands, make dinner, and then have a drink and go see Young Adult with Ryan (so good by the way). But, here I am wearing it last year in a slightly more formal way to Ryan's family's Christmas party.
