Skirt from a polo.

My husband got a new job and now I have a lot of these polo shirts with the old company logo on them. Everyone is repurposing clothes these days, so I thought about it for a while.
Last summer I had been wishing for a grey knit casual skirt...... , I cut one apart to make the main part of the skirt. THe second one I cut into strips for a ruffle on teh bottom, I am very tall and if I left it alone it would have been a mini skirt. Then I just made a drawstring to thread throught the waist...... TADA




I liked this up with Blue Cricket Design, and AWESOME blog, check it out HERE
