Ok so i have never Posted here before...
ANWAYS...
So i dont wear shirts with sleeves... I dont know why but i am most definately a tank top person. So i was lookin at these 2 big baggy tee-shirts and i thought hey im gonna try to make underwear outa them. That didnt work. But i took the rest adn made these two awesome skirts. Plus there is like barely any sewing adn they took about 5 mins to make each!!!
How to:
1-Take a short sleeved tee-shirt (mens medium or large works best) and measure about 14 inches down from the neckline.
2-Cut the tee-shirt in half horizontily at the 14inch mark.
3- Now cut on both sides by the seems near the sleaves up until you can open the shirt up adn have a large square with a little square cut out in each corner. ( the sleeves should be opened flat now)
4-Cut slits in neck of shirt until you can squeeze into the skirt.
5- Now fold the colar-ish part of the neckline down.
6- Sew all four corners of the neckline down so it is straight on top instead of straight with 2 big slits.
Well there ya go. Embellish your skirt how ever you want.

I have Pictures

I really like the shape of the skirt... for me though I wouldn't wear it just because I don't like where the words are placed...  Wink cute though.. Cheesy
