Day 340: Hip Chicks do T-shirt Skirts!

Day 341: I dip, you dip, we dip! Dress
Day 339: Miss Fix It Dress

I agree wholeheartedly with this T-shirt!  :)

I concur! :)

Hip chicks most certainly do do wine.  :)  However, this hip chick doesn’t do ill-fitting T-shirts!  I could have just taken it in to make it more fitted, but I really didn’t feel like wearing a tee today.

It’s skirt city for this one!  :)  I snipped off the collar of the tee oh-so-carefully!

Snippity Snip!

Then I pinned the sides in a bit.

Just like this!

I stitched each side down…


…and cut off the excess fabric (including the sleeves).


Now that blah tee is a cute & sexy skirt!

This Hip Chick is currently doing a nice Chardonnay! :)

Oh…and check out the back!  :)

In case you didn’t get the message the first time! ;)

    It’s like a removable tramp stamp! Very sexy.

    Haha I need that shirt! And some wine….. ;)

    Did you do any thing to the top? I’ve made 2 of these, the first I wore exactly like this for awhile, then added a thin band and drawstring. The second one I used an elastic band.
    I also just added ruffles to both, I wear them A LOT, my fave things I’ve made so far :)

      How cool that you guys found this post with your wine being unknowingly advertised! I’m in the PNW (Seattle area) so I’ll totally be checking that out :)

      Hip Chicks also has a tasting room in Newberg, OR…it’s about 10 miles from where we live and their wine is GREAT! So cool to stumble across a local place randomly on a blog like that!

    When you hem items, do you just measure, say 2 inches up from the existing hem? Or do you see how it hangs on the dress form or on you and pin it that way? I find the second method difficult to do well, but the first method sometimes gives less than desirable results.

      I put the dress on me after I’ve taken it in, and put a safety pin where I want it to fall. I allow a couple of extra inches for a seam allowance. :)

      I LOVE how I’m finding out the story behind this tee! :) I wish we had a Hip Chick store here in Columbia, SC! It sounds so awesome! :)
