Okay, believe it or not, this entire outfit was $5. Total. For everything. $1 top. $1 shoes. $1 necklace. $1 skirt. $1 belt. The catch is, the skirt was originally a shirt. A man's shirt.
That's right, a man's shirt. Here is how it became a skirt:
|First I cut off the bottom, right under the sleeves. Just a|
straight line all the way across.
|Then rolled down the top a quarter inch and sewed, just |
to finish the edge.
|Then I rolled that down about an inch and a quarter, and sewed ALMOST|
all the way around to make a casing for elastic. Stop about an inch
before you get to where you started.
|Then thread the elastic through, securing it so the end doesn't|
go in. Once you get it all the way through:
|Sew the ends together, making sure it's not twisted, then sew the hole closed.|
|And this is what you end up with!|
