Description

Colette Beignet pattern. Refashioned from XXL mens button down shirt. Shortened waist by 1 5/8" because I am short-waisted and petite and high-waisted skirts don’t look good on me! [also, they hit my ribcage which is uncomfortable … so I tried to get this to hit at the natural waist, or narrowest part of the pattern.]

    It turned out great! A button-down shirt is a great refashion idea for this pattern — all those buttonholes! :) -Ali

      Yeeees … it did seem awfully convenient to not have to make a single buttonhole!
