saw this shirt at the thrift store and thought: skirt
got this at the thrift store a few hours ago and couldn't wait to cut it up! the band at the bottom made it perfect, but you don't need it. as long as the hem is continuous, you can use it.

if the hem has the little "v" on each side, you might have to make a new casing for the draw string.

you could also use elastic in the waist, but that would involve sewing.

i didn't hem the bottom because i like the raw edge, but feel free to hem yours if you want.
