I took three extra large men's t-shirts I had lying around (as we craftsters typically do) and turned them into a reversible wrap skirt. 


It overlaps really, really far (it almost goes around my hips twice), because wrap skirts that blow open drive me nuts. 


It's blue on one side, and blue-and-purple on the other.  I also curved the edges of the skirt for a little visual interest.


I was going to add some decorative stitching, but instead I totally wimped out.  I figure I like it how it is, and if said wimping out really starts to get to me, it's not like I can't put this skirt back under the needle.

The finished project is blogged here.  It also just so happens that I blogged the whole process of making the skirt (to make it easier on anyone else who would also like a reversible jersey wrap skirt); those posts can be found under the reconstruction category on my blog.

My sewing machine is calling! Back to work I go.
