Perfect project for beginners or if you just need a new outfit in a jiffy.
All you need is two t-shirts…
The tope is altered from a long-sleeved t-shirt, I cut it off just under the bust and turned it up with an elastic stitch. Rather cut twice before you cut it too short…just and advice :)
The skirt is made from a size 10-12 t-shirt. Cut off the upper bust part and sleeve areas and just pin the part that you want to take in around the waist both sides. After you have fitted it and took in the acces just stitch an elastic band to the waist and you’re done. This took me 15 mins in total and €1.
Can’t go wrong with that :)
I’m always surrounded by cats…that’s Princess Diana on the pic looking rather disgusted in my arms. She hates being picked up.
Ps.: my friend reminded me of my heels…well, trainers felt more comfortable, but I included another pic in heels.
