Skirt to shirt!

I got really excited the other day when I saw a Martha Stewart Crafts Department tweet about a quick and easy sewing project that transforms a long skirt into a dress.  I was so inspired, I made this!

Don't be fooled by my SUPERB modeling skills - I made it myself!
It was quick and easy - I found a little number at the Goodwill that was a just below the knee length skirt.  I decided it was too short for a dress (I'm 30 something and I don't really do "mini" anything anymore.) so it would be a fun, swingy top that I could tie a ribbon around to belt it if I wanted to.

I found a rainbow-y ribbon at the back of my ribbon drawer that had long been forgotten.  Turns out it was perfect for this top!

What do you think?  I think it'll be my new gardening top...
