how do i turn a shirt into a skirt?
you'll need a shirt that's at least as wide as your waist. cut off the sleeves and straight across the neckline, and re-hem for a neat finish. you could also make it shorter or cut into an A-line shape. there are loads of ways to do the waistband:
# fold down about an inch of the top and sew down, then feed some cord through the tube for a drawstring
# sew some elastic right round the top for an elasticated waist
# cut a piece of rigid fabric (or wide ribbon) the length of your waist, sew this round the top and add buttons/a zip at the side or back.
if the shirt is pale-coloured or thin you'll probably need to line it; do this by cutting a piece of lining fabric the same area as your shirt/skirt then turn your shirt inside out and sew the lining across the top and down the seams.



also recently I had to come up with a skirt for a night out and grabbed a size large black baseball t...and cut the neck out then took the sleeve in a bit. after that i slit the sleeves so i could tie them into knots. (the neck hole was now around my waist) but the arms were still showing a little skin through the old arms so i took a few safety pins and pinned them on the inside.
i wore it with black tights and  it was perfect.
