T-shirt Skirt Tutorial July 15, 2014

I love the comfy feel of a t-shirt skirt. They are soft, comfy and easy to move around in.  I love, love, love finding
t-shirts with great art, sayings and pictures on them.   Here is a quick tutorial on how to make one.

Supplies:
*Two or more t-shirts depending on the style you want
*serger or sewing machine
*sciccors
*tape measure

First you will find two t-shirts that you think will look good together.

Second you will cut them out in triangle shapes making the bottom wider then the top.  You will need to make the length the same size on the two t-shirts.  You can use more t-shirts if you want to add more swirl to your shirt. I have found that two work good together.

Third you will use the extra fabric from the arms or the bottom of three t-shirts to make the waist.  I have found that t-shirts can be pretty stretchy so it is best to make the waist a little smaller then your regular waist size. It gives you a better fit doing it this way.

Then last, use your serger to sew them all together.

Then you can twirl and have fun in your new skirt.
