You can find country style clothing and accessories in stores like Wal-mart or Target. Many people don’t think about this, but it’s true–these clothes are always close at hand when you need them most! However, sometimes the store doesn’t have what you’re looking for. That’s where DIY comes in handy: this article will give some simple tips on how to create your own country girl outfit! First a few general rules that apply to all of these steps: wear something comfortable underneath whatever you make (the best option is usually leggings), try not to spend too much money buying supplies if possible, be sure everything matches well together with no major clashes or clashing colors, and lastly remember that it’s all about your personal style so don’t feel like you have to follow these steps exactly.
The first step is to find a long, button-up shirt. This can be as simple as going through your closet and finding a shirt that can be made into something else, or heading to the store for a plain button-up.
Next you’ll want to find an old skirt–something denim is always perfect! These skirts are available at many stores like Wal-mart and Target (or just head to your closet).
After these two pieces have been found, it’s time for alterations: measure out how long you would like the skirt by measuring from where the waistband is now all the way down until it reaches your desired length. Cut off any excess fabric so that what remains will fit nicely around those measurements. Now take your new piece of fabric and wrap it around yourself with both ends meeting in front; mark this spot on the fabric and cut off any excess.
Wrap the skirt around yourself evenly, pinning where necessary so that each side is even before you sew it up. Sew this section together from one end to the other (from hemline to waistband) using a sewing machine.
Now take your shirt piece and fold in half with both ends meeting at the seam; measure out how long you would like it by measuring from where it currently folds over until desired length of sleeve–this should be about an inch shorter than what you marked for the new dress bottom measurement earlier on! Once again, cut off any excess fabric except enough for stitching, then use some pins or a large safety pin to hold these pieces together while they are sewn together.
Now, take the top hem of your skirt piece and fold in half so that it becomes a tube shape. You will need to use some pins or safety pin to hold these two pieces together while they are sewn together–you may also want to do this with the shirt now if you didn’t before! Sew them both up from one end (hem) until all three seams meet at the other side; make sure there is no excess fabric as this can be very difficult when sewing on sleeves!
Once again, trim off any excesses except for enough material where stitching was done—this should come out just about right once everything is pinned down correctly. With a straight edge ruler measure length needed for opening/sides of shirt.

With a straight edge ruler measure length needed for opening/sides of skirt piece–you want it long enough so that you will have an inch or two overhanging past your waistband later on. Leave yourself some room to work with here–you do not want it too short either.
