I wanted to share with you a sewing DIY I did! I'm such a sewing noob, and I had no idea what I was doing, but I actually managed! So if I can do it, you can do it too! I had this old work shirt that was a unisex M, and I was swimming in it. Now that I don't work there anymore, I decided to turn it into something nicer! So I cut the collar, sleeves and the print out, so it turned into a crop top. Later I cut out bits below the armpits and sewed it together. It's still a little big like in the photo below.

My messy workplace
I realized that the excess fabric from the shirt was enough for a mini skirt for me! I put it on, safety pinned the excess fabric, measured it and divided it to each side when layed flat on the table. A mistake I did first was to cut a triangle from those to the sides a little further down, and it ended up looking like t-shirt sleeves sticking out. So I ripped out the stitches, and cut diagonally from the top again and almost all the way down (right before the hem). I turned it inside out and sewed the sides together again (I don't know what it's called, but I call it a ''loop stitch''). This time it looked great!
I did nothing to the top of it, so it doesn't look perfect there, but it probably will never show.
Here is the finished skirt! I wanted it to flare out at the bottom. It's so blue though, hahah.
I'm just gonna throw in a couple of outfits from the past days. Today I'm wearing that above.
