T-shirt to Skirt

The other day I spotted some t-shirts on clearance at Target.  I bought a XL men's shirt for $1.50, with the intent to turn it into a simple summer skirt.  (What?  Summer's almost over?  Frankly, I'm in denial.)  Here's the final product.  (The skirt is the pink and green part - you'll see.)

I took the skirt, aligned the hem at the bottom, and cut off as much as I could.  The beauty of using a t-shirt is that you already have a perfect hem at the bottom.  All you have to do it gather the top and sew on a waistband.

I thought it would be fun to use a different color for the waistband, giving it a color block look.  I made the skirt the same way I made the super simple summer skirt HERE, but I didn't leave the seam exposed this time.

It can be worn folded over with a shirt out....

or unfolded with a shirt tucked in.

It's easy to make and super comfortable to wear.

Thursday I have some pants I made Rex that I'm so excited to show you and tomorrow's Wake Up Wednesday.  Is it just me or have things been quiet in blogland the last week or so?  I think everyone's busy getting kids back in school.

Thanks for dropping in.
