MADE: TRAINING SKIRT



It's not news to report that man skirts are on trend.  Designers have been putting a spin on them for years.  I like to think of this skirt as the training wheels of the skirt world. 

This project is the perfect intro to skirt wearing, mostly because it just gives the illusion of a long shirt. I used my sewing machine, because I hate hand sewing, but you could easily hand sew this. 

Spring clothes are hitting the stores now so you can pick up plaid shirts for really cheap.
I got this one at Target for $8. I might pick up another one and wear them together. 
MAKE:
SEWING MACHINE/ SCISSORS/ MEASURING TAPE/ PLAID SHIRT 

1. Lay out the shirt. I wanted to include the pockets so cut up from the armpit about 3 inches. 
 2. Measure your waist. Divide in half. Use tailors chalk to taper out the waist of the skirt. Cut turn inside out and sew the chalk lines.
3. Pin and hem the top seam of the shirt 
4.Fold down the top seam just above the buttonhole. 
 5. Pin and sew a baby hem.
 6. Cut out the placket behind the button hole. Done

  1. It also works because the red plaid makes it look punkish, like those butt-flap bags they wear. Over leggings or skinnies, this looks awesome!
