Did I mention that this is a no-sew project with only five basic steps? And that it takes about 15 minutes per skirt?
I'm telling ya. You're going to see how easy this is and make a thousand of them. Seriously.
What you'll need:
|Supplies: a pair of sharp scissors, a flat work space, and a cotton jersey-knit t-shirt|
(size of shirt depends on how big/long/full you want your finished skirt to be)
|Cut bottom of shirt off just below the armpits- for a longer skirt go all the way to the sleeve seams, for a shorter|
skirt cut further down... adjust according to what you want.
|Take bottom half of shirt and fold in half to make sure you cut straight (clearly I did not- trim as needed).|
|With the tip of your sharp scissors, make two tiny vertical slits within the bottom hem|
of the t-shirt (take care to only nip one layer, don't cut all the way through!).
|Cut a long, narrow strip of jersey from what remains with the sleeve half (make sure it's not|
wider than the hem of the bottom half) and stretch it as far as you can get it to stretch.
(above: stretched on the left, un-stretched on the right)
And what to do with the top half of the cut-up shirt? Quarter it and add it to the dust rag bag! No one can resist helping on cleaning day when you can dust with fuchsia rags. Everybody wins!
