From the first, I already eyed this shirt to be sewn into skirt. Why? Because it has lovely motifs and the size is just perfect to accommodate my *cough* big *cough* hip.
Since this is a pencil skirt that fit snuggly on your waist and hip, it’s better to find shirt that wide enough and a bit stretchy.
Marking pen / tailors chalk
Cut the sleeves off and cut horizontally just under the collar.
Take your waist, hip, and knee circumference measurements, and divide by 2 then you get the width for each point in the picture.
Draw your line using marking pen/tailor’s chalk, then pin it and sew.
TIP: when taking your knee measurement, stand with open legs. If the width is too small, you wouldn’t able to walk comfortably.
Last step. Sew shut the button placket start from the second from top until the last button. Hem the top and bottom side. VOILA! You made yourself a nice pencil skirt with slit. Congratulation!
TIP: add snap button between opened top button if its too revealing when you wear it. Ì did.
