New Dress A Day wannabe – orange striped skirt

I’ve had this shirt forever trying to think of some way to DIY it. Then the other day I had an idea! Bell skirt!

It’s quite enormous. Anybody recognize this Disney uniform shirt?

Step 6: I’m attempting belt loops! I’ve never done this before, but I think they worked out. I cut squares and ironed 2 sides in. Then I sewed them in half.
