Scrubs to Skirt-Upcycled Toddler Skirt

Yesterday was Valentine's Day and in my usual, take care of everyone else and leave my kid until last fashion, I whipped up this little skirt for my daughter about 30 minutes before we left for her play groups Valentines party! I found this Scrubs shirt at the thrift store for $0.50 and I knew I was going to make it into a skirt for her the moment I saw the big pockets on it! Sadie LOVES pockets! I think most kids do!
Start by laying your shirt out flat..you can iron it if you want to first, but I didn't have time...

Measure you child from their waist to hemline and add 2 inches-Make marks at that measurement all the way across the shirt and cut.

It should look like a big rectangle now.

Measure the elastic for your childs waist plus one inch, I won't go into detail here but instructions to make a casing on your skirt can be found right here at my friend Jodi's blog!

And voila! Skirt is done! No hemming, no side seams, nothing! A skirt with two big pockets to keep all her Valentines cards!

Hope your day was filled with LOVE!
