The kids and I have been enjoying the beautiful, sunny weather we have been having. Yesterday we went to the pool. I slipped on a skirt that I recently made from a shirt and I realized I never added that to my "portfolio" (aka: blog).
Once upon a time I had a mens shirt in black and gold, otherwise identical to the one below.
Then I had a pair of scissors and one more black shirt. I started cutting, sewing, and pinning onto my dress form. And now I have the perfect little beach/pool cover up!
Here is the finished project - shirt to skirt:
I realize it is hard to see the patchwork, so here is a little better view of the front. Very raw, but I like it. It's not meant for out on the town, just for playing in the sand :)
Hope you like it! Now I have to figure out what I am going to do with it's twin in grey and black .... hmmmmm.....
