I love recycling old clothes. It's WAY cheaper than buying fabric, it keeps stuff out of landfills, and, if you're creative, you can get around doing the hard parts like zippers, button holes and belt loops. I made this little navy skirt out of a pair of men's dress slacks I picked up for $1.50 at goodwill. By using an old pair of pants, I was able to avoid having to sew the zipper, buttons, button holes, belt loops, pockets and interfacing. The hardest part was probably ripping out the stitches. The second hardest part is getting around to ironing it... oops.
