Can you buy skirts this cute for $7? Yeah, maybe…but where’s the fun in that?
When I saw this tutorial for a shirt skirt, i fell madly in love. I wish a had elastic thread like she did, but i didn’t so I had to make do with what i had. I really like hers through, for the tummy coverage, so hopefully i can find elastic thread so I can make it her way next time.
but here’s how I did it:
I bought this ladies XL tank at Walmart for $7.
I cut the shirt at the bottom of the sleeves to make a square.
I sewed a top hem, then a second line under it, leaving a small opening.
I attached a safety pin to the end of the elastic to guide it between the two stitch lines. Once it was the right size to fit and stretch, i stitched the leading end into place, then stitched the end in place and sealed up the hole.
and here it is: i gotta tell you, it’s super comfy. I ran errands in it all day and wore it thru dinner and bath time. i certainly plan on making many more shirt skirts for the summer. i also swiped one of my hubby’s old white t-shirts and made a slip the exact same way. this will allow me to wear it under any of these i make.
