I don't wear flip flops (or thongs as I grew up saying). Among other things I hate the scuffing sound they make. So I'm going to have to come up other footwear solutions for this beachy little business. This shirt also came from the last chance pile and was big enough to make a child's skirt out of the sleeves. I cut the back of the pattern out of the front of the shirt and the front of the pattern out of the back of the shirt. Got it? The XXL Men's Tall shirt was in near perfect condition and even though there was barely enough fabric to cover my own behind, there would be plenty of fabric to cut out clothes for an older child (if you are so inclined). It needs a pocket, I think.
I used the shirt hem for the bottom of the skirt and the drawstring is attached to heavy elastic (as to avoid any being de-skirted in the park this summer by little hands) in the waist band. Oh, and I used the skirt pattern from the Sew U book for the three main pieces.
