Detroit Tigers TShirt Skirt

I started my work week with a bang! The office I work at got tickets to the 2nd to last home baseball game for the Detroit Tigers! Wait…it gets even better….we got VIP suite tickets!!!

I originally wanted to turn this…

 into a cute dress, but it got complicated. I had to switch my plans into making a skirt using the bottom half of this shirt.

   Sewing the casing for the elastic waistband.
 I threaded the elastic through and stitched up the hole!

Now this would be way to short as is so luckily JoAnn Fabrics has Tigers fabric on sale!  I cut an 8 inch piece that I folded over to make a nice bottom for my skirt.
 Pinned the fabric and sewed it to my skirt.
 Then I finished it off with some navy bias tape!

   I cut out 3 circles from the scraps to make a decorative flover. I cut the edges into flower petals and sewed it all together with a button!
 Then I hot glued it to a jelwery pin.

 I was lucky enough that my roomie gave me this awesome Tigers tank top to wear with my new skirt!!! I had to pair my new outfit with some leggins and an orange sweater because the weather was supposed to get down in the low 50s, pretty cold to watch a baseball game.
 Round 1 of food!

   Round 2: desert! Yumm!!
 We played the White Sox and lost 3 to 2, but it was still an exciting game!

   We had a good view of the fountain sponsored by Chevrolet that would spout off everytime the music played!
I had such a great night cheering on our Tigers in my new Tigers outfit!!! Can’t wait until next season to wear it again!

 
Happy Refashioning!!!
