As we promised at the beginning of All The Skirts: Blank Slate Patterns & Hawthorne Threads, we used one of the 10 free skirt tutorials from Melly Sews to bring you today’s skirt. Make that skirts. Because this free skirt tutorial was so fast and easy and the end result so fun and comfortable we just had to make two!
The Easy T-shirt Skirt Tutorial is a cute and most of all COMFORTABLE way to refashion old t-shirts. If you’ve been around Skirt Fixation very long at all, you know how much we love refashioning clothes. So the Easy T-shirt Skirt Tutorial was a must make.We started with 2 XL t-shirts passed on from the tallest male in our household. One was a plain green t-shirt, the other an Old Navy t-shirt. This would be a great refashion for those old team t-shirts…a new way to support your favorite team!We simply followed the Melly Sews tutorial almost to the letter, and about 45 minutes later, we had 2 new skirts. The almost part was that our sleeves weren’t big enough to make the pockets, so we used leftover brown fabric from this skirt.Oh, and the exposed elastic waistbands on these skirts are also upcycled from old skirts! We didn’t have the right size of elastic in our stash, so we “borrowed” the elastic from 2 skirts in the “to-be-refashioned” pile. Except that we’re not giving it back because these skirts are too comfortable to part with!These skirts wrap up the All The Skirts: Blank Slate Patterns & Hawthorne Threads edition. But you still have time to enter the giveaway by filling out the Rafflecopter and linking up to the InLinkz widgets.
