Upcycled Men's Shirt

Skills acquired: pleating, using hem tape

I made a skirt! This is the finished product of my upcycled men's skirt. I'm particularly proud of the pleating. I finished the hem at the waist with hem tape, a substance I will wax poetic about in the future.

It's a pretty simple design, so I'm trying to think of ways to jazz it up. Contrasting waistbands, upgrading buttons, piping, ruffles. When I have more, I'll list them on Etsy!


  1. Cute! This looks very comfy for summer. And I like your ideas for spicing up the designs, especially contrasting waistbands and upgraded buttons.

  2. Super cute!! I've thought about this but never done it.
