T-shirt Skirt

I mentioned a little skirt that I made from one of Todd's work t-shirts. Here is how I did it and you will laugh at how easy this was to do.

First, procure a t-shirt from husband...size XL.

Then, measure up from the bottom hem the length you want your skirt to be. I wanted Bekah's to be a bit longer since she would be wearing it on gym day and outside to play. So, I measured 15 inches from the hem.

After cutting the shirt to the desired length, I ran a zig-zag stitch along the edge of the cut end.

Then, I created a 1" inch casing for the elastic. Cute a piece of elastic to fit Bekah's waist. Insert elastic and stitch up the hole.

I cut out a little image on the back of the shirt and created a fun little "applique" of sorts on the front of the skirt per Rebekah's request. Got some ribbon that I bought ages ago at WalMart and added it to the hem of the skirt for some added fun.

Here is what it turned out like...

The sunglasses and golden yellow skirt were for the school theme of You Are My Sunshine...wear yellow and sunglasses.

Sans glasses...

Here she is showing off her little dog and cat from the back of daddy's shirt. She was happy with it and it was super comfortable.

  1. I don't know which is cuter Beckah or the t shirt skirt! Such a clever idea. I see the girls together in the post below, they are getting to be so grown up and beautiful just like their Mom!
