Ruffled Coral with Blue and White Stripes

Before you throw out that old shirt or are tempted to get rid of that item because... it's just too boring, take a look at this fun project.  I used and old long sleeved cotton shirt and a men's large striped button up shirt.
Before:
 The men's large striped shirt
 

Plain coral long sleeved shirt.
After:
 I decided to turned the men's shirt into a lose and comfy skirt.
 


 

 I love the big side pockets:)
This shirt was pretty easy and quick to revamp.  I used the long sleeves to make ruffles for the front, then ruffed up the sleeve edge and gave it a little petal look.  For some reason I love these colors together.  Coral is such a pretty shade that makes everything feel fresh, and blue and white stripes??? What can I say, very classic.
I hope this has helped you look at your closet in a different way.
