use a pattern!
just treat the shirt like normal cotton jersy, and follow the pattern, make sure that the shirt is XXXL!you dont want to run out of fabric!

Oh I made a skirt like that from a sweatshirt! I wish I had the site that showed me how! Lemme see if I remember...

This is the directions using a sweatshirt...Im guessing with a big tshirt you could just cut from the bottom instead of using the long sleeves...

Cut the shirt under the armpits straight across

Cut sleeves (or bottom of shirt) into long strips.

sew 2 parallel lines the length of the strip. Make them loooose!

pull the strings on the ends and it bunches up the fabric into a ruffle.

sew ruffle onto bottom of skirt!

I really hope that made sense to someone!

I know this thead is kind of old, but I think this skirt and tutorial is almost exactly right.
