I always loved buying T-Shirts when I was on holidays or the odd slogan shirt. Most of them are far too big now. So I ended up with a high number of T-Shirts I can not wear anymore. Of course I also didn't want to throw them away since they are memories of good times.
They were sitting in my wardrobe and waiting for something to be done with them.
Finally I came up with an idea. Inspired by several DIY projects like the upcycled T-Shirt scarf I decided it was finally time to give my old T-Shirts a new life.
Instead of sewing a scarf I decided to do a skirt out of them.
I started by cutting the print of the Shirts into squares. Start with the biggest print and take that as your measurement for all other T-Shirts. It's not an exact science. I basically cut the first piece and put it on top of the other T-Shirts to get about the same size.
Red is my fav colour so I ended up with six pieces in different red shades which were enough to make a skirt.
The first step is to sew three pieces together. I did the same with the other three pieces and finally joined the two stripes of T-Shirts. Next sew it together to have a tube. The good thing about T-Shirt fabric is that you don't have to worry about a hem. I just did a zig zag stitch all around the bottom hem. (Use zig zag for all your sewing to have a stretchy stitch.
