Long shorts & skirt-to-shirt

Here are some wardrobe refashions that I’ve been working on over the last couple of weeks (slowly taking pictures as I go). I made three pairs of long shorts out of a pair of blue plaid capris, khaki pants and black dress pants. While looking through my closet I realized that I had 5 pairs of khaki pants and three black (plain & safe I know) and decided I could part with one pair of each for new shorts. I also made a halter style top (right) out of an old skirt that didn’t fit right. The diagram shows how I did it. Pretty straight foward I think. I think it worked out really well. And, lucky for me, I got a new strapless bra in the mail today that fits perfectly and works very well with my new top (thanks mom).
