My husband strongly objects to me sorting out his old work shirts, and commonly comes up with the comment "I'll just wear it once more". Before I know it, it has sneaked its way back into his wardrobe, and months later it is still there. My latest solution is to convince him that his shirts wont end up in the rubbish, but can be recycled as clothes for our little ones.
This is a skirt made from 3 of his old shirts and some matching floral fabric I had in my stash. It's a big hit with my big girl, and with the elasticated waistband it should fit for a long time yet!
