Step 1.) Cut t-shirt off at armpits.
Step 2.) Cut off a one inch strip. This will be used for your tie. Stretch this strip so it curls in on itself. (see next 2 pics)
Step 3.) Sew the casing for the tie. Make this about an inch wide.
(note: the hem of the t-shirt is also the hem of your skirt:)
Step 4.) Cut a small slit thru one layer of casing in order to slide tie thru.
Step 5.) Attach a large pin to end of tie and thread thru the casing.
TA DA!!! An adorable skirt made in less then 15 minutes!
So far, I've made a pink one and a purple one.
I want one in every color!
*If you get your T-shirts from the thrift store, make sure to check for stains on the front of the shirt. Also make sure the backside is not printed on past the armpits.
* If you are a size small person, use a medium size t-shirt. I am a med/large size person so I used an extra large t-shirt for the purple skirt....which fits better then the pink skirt which was a large. I gave the pink skirt to my sister who is smaller then me and it fits her well.
* If you want your skirt to have lots of pleats, use a shirt that is really big.
* I tried to make one from a polo shirt and when I tried it on, it just didn't fall as nice as the t-shirt skirts do.
T-shirts waiting to be turned into skirts:)
