Experiments with zero waste recycled clothing – Design 6: SKIRT

Using two shirts buttoned together to form the side seams (and openings). The top three buttons were fastened each side, the next buttonholes were skipped, to ruche up the skirt and the very last button was left unfastened. Outward box pleats were added at the original shirt shoulders, to remove excess fabric and add shape. Again the sleeves were fed inside the skirt to use as tape, to anchor the skirt in asymmetric gathers. The back of the skirt was gathered more to create a bustle effect.
