WHO: Old shorts found around house
WHAT: Made into a skirt
It started out like this-in corral....



It was raining cats&dogs yesterday evening-living in the south means you get used to hurricane season-so I decided to do a project. It took me around 3 hours but I finally finished it. You can kind of see the white thread a) because I don't go around buying corral thread really and 2) I sewed the whole thing by hand. Yes, I do all my DIYs by hand because I don't own a sewing machine and would end up killing myself if I ever attempted to operate one. It was actually very easy; all you need is scissors, holding tape (thats what that grey thing is in the picture up there), and a needle (and thread of course, duh). Don't mind the ugly shirt I was just taking pictures to show you the skirt. Ill make a real outfit of this skirt later-ciao bellas.



  1. oo love it with the belt, and the colour, theres a nice mac lipstick called costa chic that would go well!

  2. That's so cute!

    Thank you so much for the comment in my blog!

  3. pretty pretty pretty pretty!
    I'll get you the recipe ASAP (I don't feel like going to the kitchen to get it right now :P )

  4. cute transformation

  5. So funny what you said about the sewing machine, they are kinda scary hehe. The skirt's really cute, I'd wear it. Good job. =)

  6. Man, i wish I was as crafty as you are. My idea of a DIY is chopping the legs off a pair of pants and calling it a day.

  7. Aww I wish it rained here! It's so hot, I feel like I'm melting. Lately it's been nice!

    I love how you made it yourself, very cool.



I really want to hear it, type away!
