Piece of cake! I can so do this shirt skirt. You can, too.



  • Over-sized dress shirt
  • Elastic thread
  • Elastic band
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine (or needle & thread)

To Do

  • Measure for desired length and cut the shirt accordingly.
  • Place elastic band at top, fold fabric over it and sew.
  • Sew the two arms together to make it a belt.
  • Add belt loops with left over material or from any fabric you want to use.
  • Wear the shirt skirt.

DIY Fashion: Zipper Appliqué


I was meandering through a Joann fabric and craft store when I stumbled upon a DIY fashion zipper appliqué. If you can’t get or make the zipper jewelry (or are looking for a DIY fashion project), I suppose an appliqué is the next best thing. The zipper appliqué is $7.99 + tax.

Refashion: Jeans to Denim Skirt Tutorial


My sewing abilities are very limited, but I’m learning how to do more with a needle and thread. What would modest fashion be without some refashion? You know, alterations and upcycling.

Instead of reinventing the wheel (you really don’t need ME to do a sewing tutorial!), I fetched two tutorials. One is a video tutorial. The other is for the print babies (like me) who like to read along.

Follow the cookie crumbs and enjoy!
