Welcome Home Skirt

A long time ago (before dental school) Jason wore "Utilities" - Navy working uniform.  I loved all of his uniforms.  Since he no longer can wear this uniform, I re-purposed it. 

To make this skirt, I cut out two rectangles (1 front and 1 back) as wide as I could.  I added a waistband with elastic (so the buttons do not go all the way to the top).  Then I added ruffled navy grosgrain ribbon to the hem.  I really wanted you to see the pockets and the embroidered labels. I also wanted to keep the creases, there are the 2 in front and the 3 creases from the back of the shirt. 

I think this would be the perfect little skirt to wear to welcome home Daddy after a long deployment or for Charlotte to show off how patriotic she is.  Go Navy!!
