Hello! I'm Suzannah, a serious DIYer and mom of two little ones. Follow along with my DIY fixer upper house renovations, sewing and crafty projects, real food recipes, and de-stressing goals.
I believe you can love your home just the way it is, AND have the power to design and make big changes to make it better.
I'm also the author of DIY Wardrobe Makeovers!

So ahead of my time this spring!!

Don't you love it when this happens?
I was perusing the "New arrivals" on ModCloth today and came across the "Shirt Skirt"--I kid you not, that's what it's called.  That is the best name for it; that's what I always referred to mine as.  Look at this thing!
It's by Rojas and it's $79.99.  They want $80 bucks for this!
The reason this is hilarious to me is, if you weren't around last month, I did a tutorial to make a pretty darn similar skirt out of an actual men's shirt--recycled, costing the $4 or whatever your Goodwill charges for men's shirts.
I also recently saw the Stitch in Time dress on Lulu's:
Clearly we are onto something with the turning-a-men's-shirt-into-women's-clothes (that still resemble the men's clothes) thing!
Check out my tutorial and come up with your own darling Shirt Skirt!
Here's mine:
Maybe sometime soon I will do another tutorial for a slightly differently-styled shirt skirt, more like the ModCloth version that features the curved hem!  Theirs also has a little elastic at the back of the waist; could be eaisier to DIY that version.
Doesn't it feel good to be ahead of the times? ;)


  1. That's awesome. I saw your tutorial and have been considering stealing from my husbands closet...

  2. Get! I will check out your tut. I have been really into refashion lately! I need to get some photos together and get them posted on my blog. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I linked to your greatness here:


    gonna grab a button too. Thanks for the intro to Holly Stadler also!

  4. Haha! I saw your tutorial awhile back (being that I've shared many tutorials on my website for turning men's shirts into fashionable stuff...just not a button-down into a skirt)...and I thought it was fabulous! It licks ModCloth's into a cocked hat, whatever that means.:-) $80! Silly. You were definitely ahead of the curve!
