This lilac shirt, is far too pretty to get rid of, but I can see why Mr Recycled didn't wear it much, it is not his colour.

I love the colour lilac, but this shirt is far too big for me, plus I don't really need any shirts, so another idea - make the shirt into a skirt. A Sh-kirt.
I cut off the top of the shirt, under the armpits, and used my new overlocker to fix up the top hem to prevent fraying. Then cut some elastic from my thrifted elastic stash:
Stitched the elastic waist band, and using left over fabric, I made some belt loops:
It fits perfectly, I really like it, and will definitely create some more sh-kirts; they are so easy to make!
I may be in my 30's, but I can still hear my Mum telling me off from far away .."why did you not iron that skirt before you took photos?" ... (cause I am lazy) ;)
