Two Minute Upcycle

Recently I got together with some friends for a night out and a clothing swap. A cute blue and white striped top caught my eye, not for the shirt, but for the fabric.  I was able to turn it into a fun skirt:

Don't mind my modeling! 

This upcycle took two minutes to make, literally. I was lucky enough to find a shirt that had an elastic empire waist, so all I did was cut the top part off. It was super easy and now I have a fun, comfy skirt to wear! Wahoo!

Update: I recently remade this skirt, adding fresh elastic for the waistband and taking it in considerably on the sides for a more fitted, a-line look. And I still love it!
