As Grandma always said: “Waste not, want not…”
…recognize what I used to whip up this adorable little set?
Yup! It’s the chopped turtle neck from my quirky cowl (+ an outgrown munchkin long sleeve)
slice the shirt in half under the arms…
and chop off the sleeves as well, set them aside for now…
pop the turtle neck over the bottom half of the shirt (right-sides-facing & raw edges lined up)
stitch the raw edges together
flip your sweet new skirt right-side-out & zigzag over the outside seam for extra strength
grab the chopped sleeves & zigzag the raw edges for a purty lettuce hem et voila! A matching pair of legwarmers are born! (plain sleeves? give ’em some embellishment love!)
dancin’ on the balcony in the rain!
