Button front recycled oxford shirt skirt. This was really fun to make! and it didn’t take long, especially for a beginner. In the end I had a hard time deciding whether to hem it or not. I liked the length and the soft edge but weaves don’t fray real gracefully… I decided to hem it… but I included an image of how it looked before I did.
100% cotton mens oxford shirt.
I used the sleeves, front button section and a large piece of the back of the shirt.
This creation was inspired by Anda’s “Old Oxford Shirt Skirt”
