    After you sew the hem - this part should still be open.

Good luck Hannahable Happy You can always use a block of fabric from the arms to extend the skirt if you need to Happy
Hope you love your skirt!

thanks so much. I went thrifting today. The shirt I got was a bit too small but I am going to try it out =]

Hi Hannahable!
You could try shopping around at a store or go thrifting & 'try the shirts on' by buttoning it up around your waste until one fits right with a good length.
Disregard the top 3 buttons or so since you'll cut the shirt across from the armpits Tongue
I hope you find one!

This is so cute! How large should the shirt be though? I plus size so I'm not sure what man's size would fit right.
