This has to be the most comfortable skirt I've ever put on.. I used a total of 45 squares of fabric from tee shirts (some from my closet, most from a recent "Dollar Day" at my local Goodwill) and it came out amazingly well.  I'll gladly post a tutorial on the pattern when I have time.  It was super easy, just took a while (hey, it's patchwork!). 

Sorry bout the pics... the lighting was bad and the stupid ottoman kept getting in the way!  My only question is, should I leave the bottom hem all uneven like that (I kinda like it), or should I make a straight hem?

I would leave the bottom uneven, I think it's very nice!

I like it.
I think it adds character to the skirt if you leave the bottom uneven like that.

I think it's a gorgeous skirt which I desperately want to own! I really like the bottom.  And I would LOVE a tute!

Very nice! Great job on finding all those earthy-toned t-shirts too. I wish I could wear long skirts... they make me look shorter than I already am.  Undecided

I agree, I think the uneven bottom makes it look that much more bohemian.  Grin

I second the notion for a tute!  Smiley  And, I would definitely keep the hem as-is.  I think a straight edge would not look right.
Great job!

I would definitely leave the bottom hem like that. It adds visual interest to the bottom. Very cute and extra comfy looking!


I'm looking forward to the tutorial!

Ooooh, this looks like a great project to make with all the leftover fabric from my constantly unfinished t-shirt quilt.  I look forward to the tutorial!
