Sew a flannel skirt
Continuing last week's inspiration of flannel, I decided to upcycle a button up shirt into a skirt. This is another great way to sport flannel this fall, especially with tights or leggings. The sewing skills for this project are fairly simple! Check out how I made it, below --

    1) Cut the top portion of the shirt off. Right under the arm is an ideal point to start cutting. Use the lines as a guide!

    3) Create folded pleats all along the top. The width of each pleat - and the number of pleats - will depend entirely on where you want the skirt to sit on you, and your personal measurements. Try it one when needed- remember, there's buttons in the front, so you can put it on that way.
