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 1: Remove pocket. I’ll reuse this baby later, b/c who doesn’t love pockets?

Step 2: Lay a skirt that fits me on top of the shirt and start cutting.

Step 3: Sew up sides and hem the top.

Ok – you’re done!

Well, I could be done, but I wanted to add a tad of pizazz!

Step 4: Take the pieces on top and cut 4″ strips. I’m making a belt!


Step 5: Turn belt right side out.

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.

Step 7: I only had scraps enough for 5, so I sewed them on sporadically.

Step 8: Sew the pocket back on and ..


I’m quite pleased with myself. ๐Ÿ™‚
