I love how this turned out and, as stated in the original tutorial, it is incredibly comfortable.


I did tweak the pattern because it turns out an odd shape with some funky blocky stuff happening at the otherwise pointy hemline. Here it is folded in half. There are 3 of those longer bits, when I wear the skirt one hangs at the back, one on each side.


Those double squares are very long, I'm pretty tall but even I would trip over this business.


A solution is to cut that into a shorter pointy shape that blends in with the rest. It is still an uneven hemline but it looks great, not weird at all.


When I cut up the shirts there was a lot of extra fabric so I cut some smaller squares for a skirt for my youngster, it's posted here.

That came out great!  I love the patchy Sally-esque feeling of it.  (As in Sally from the Nightmare Before Christmas.)  I bet it's incredibly comfortable.  Beautiful work.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Sally one of my first thoughts, too! CLM, you're like a Canadian with tee shirt version of the saying about Argentinians using every part of the cow, except the moo!

I thought Sally too, it's the (as my daughter calls them) gloomy colours.
I wore it out to breakfast this morning, it is as comfy as an old tshirt. Makes sense since I got them all at the second hand store, ha. I felt like I had better use up as much as possible since I'd purchased them instead of pulling from stash. I just didn't have the colours I wanted or enough of any colours. I have made so many blankets out of them lately that I actually need to go shopping for more to finish the last one.
