DIY Shirt Skirt

Posted by on Sat, April 6th, 2013 at 11:00 am

Hey Swaggernauts – Happy Saturday!  This is Ashley, and I’ve been spending my morning watching style tips on YouTube.  My goodness there are so many amazing videos out there that I was never even aware of – there’s a tutorial for everything!  I just found this video and I thought it was so cool that I wanted to share it with all of you.  Do you have any of your husband’s, dad’s, brother’s, boyfriend’s button down shirts lying around?  Make it into an adorable, fashionable skirt in 30 seconds!  Yep – I’m totally doing this!

 

How cool is that?!  It looks so fresh and hip, I would have never known it was made out of a $2 Thrift Shop shirt!

Take a picture of your new shirt skirt and post a link to the picture in the comments below.  I might hook you up with 50 Swag Bucks!

Have a great weekend!
