T-Shirt Into A Skirt Tutorial July 28, 2010 I’m so excited to post about this! When I met Dana, I fell in love with the skirt she was wearing. I developed an idea in my head I thought just might be crazy enough to work. The Hubs thought I was a little crazy when I explained my idea to him. It’s the easiest thing in the world to do! The shirt skirt perfect for summertime. I wore the green and white one to Sofie’s birthday party. I had 2 women in Walmart stop me to tell me how comfy my skirt looked and when I told them how I made it, they demanded I call Rachael Ray immediately! The process is so easy. I do my shopping at Goodwill for 1 reason. So, get your super cheap thrifted shirt. To determine what shirt size you should get, just make sure it will go around you. So, lay your shirt out flat, and whack it off right under the sleeves. I like to use thread the same color as my fabric. **If you don’t know how to shirr, check out some online tutorials or videos. Now, I break a rule of shirring. And that’s it!

If I remember correctly, I wore that necklace for 4 days in a row. I love my necklace so much, I’ve been wanting to share it with you for sometime, but haven’t worked on the tutorial until just now. Materials: 1 XXL or XXXL men’s t-shirtScissors and/or rotary cutterSewing machine and or needle & thread Cut off the bottom hem of the shirt. Cut open one end of each strip. Sew coiled ends together.
