How to Make a Ruffled Top from a Men’s Shirt

done3openingimg Tomorrow being Administrative Professionals’ Day I wanted to create something that’s fashionable yet doesn’t scream “look at me!” (and is totally appropo for the office!).  With Earth Day just around the corner as well, what could be more eco than upcycling?  Steal a button-down from your guy’s closet and give it a feminine makeover…that will make it a mainstay in yours.

Alexander Wang Ruffled Skirt…Found in Forever21???

(from zippermanufacturers.com)…Buy a metal-coil non-separating black zipper from a sewing supply store…

for a whole lot less.

I’m onto you, Forever21!  You thought if you waited a year and a half, no one would notice you’ve knocked off Alexander Wang’s skirt (shown above, from the Lucky Magazine August 2008 issue – taped into my “inspiration files”)

Well – haha!  The ruse is up.

I’ve now snapped up the Tiered Skirt from one of your stores, and will be adding a zipper and black waistband shortly – to make my very own Alexander Wang Ruffled Skirt lookalike!

$495 vs. $29.79 (the zipper is $4.99)….who is the wiser now, hmmmmm?
