I needed a creative fix and a diversion from cleaning and doing report cards. So, I searched through my closet and to my horror, one of my favorite t-shirts had a hole in the hem!
NOOOOOO! I was ready to throw it away when I realized I could just change it into a dress with the bottom of another t-shirt. I had a brand new black t-shirt that was from my son’s baseball team and never worn. It did the trick nicely. I just cut off the offending hem from the striped shirt, then added the bottom of the black t-shirt. I can wear it as a dress with black tights and stack heeled loafers for work, or with black leggings and ballet flats for casual. I feel women in their 50’s can wear leggings providing the top totally covers the “behind.” I wouldn’t be caught dead with them otherwise!
