The cutting left a very thin strip of cloth behind. Finally got around to removing it.

Since I basically sewed the bottom of the shirt shut, this has been quite a simple project. It is a good project for a beginner.

In my mind I call the resulting garment a "shirt dress".

Worn indoors it is a very comfortable garment, especially if you are bare foot. Works well as a house dress. However, as the hem is above the knee, I would worry about exposure if I were to wear it outdoors.

Note about Skirtmanship-as I sit I find myself lifting the hem at the front, because it wants to catch on my knees.
