Do you remember E & T, the adorable girls whose Grandma made them skirts from dresses? Well, today they are baaaaaaaaack! Their awesome Grandma made them some skirts from T-shirts!
E & T and sister J and little bro A!
See how each skirt is unique? We have a feeling J is going to be the luckiest of these 3 girls as she gets to wear her big sisters’ skirts also in time!
What fun trim and comfy skirts!
Thanks for sharing girls! And remember you can visit E, T, J, A and family here!
We decided we wanted to browse the web and find out how to make skirts from t-shirts too! We found so many tutorials and cute photos that we had a hard time narrowing it down to the one we would start with! But here’s a few of our favorites!
First we found a tutorial over at Suburb Mama for this cute, cute, cute ruffled skirt made from t-shirts! It’s so awesome in white, but you could also mix up the colors, go for an ombre effect with light and dark t-shirts, or go for a color block with a different color at the very bottom ruffle.
We found a new-sew option for all you sewing machine-less people out there! Just visit Wobisobi for the tutorial of this one. Just looking at the skirt, we would never have guessed it was a new sew skirt! Love it, love it, love it!
We found this cutie over at Makeit-loveit.com. This one has an ombre effect (you know how we feel about ombre!) And one thing we learned from this t-shirt skirt tutorial was that you don’t have to do any hemming with t-shirt skirts, as the knit material of the t-shirt won’t fray! How great is that? Because you probably know how sometimes when you are sewing and you get to the end of a project you get tired! And sometimes the last hemming gets left for another time. And sometimes that skirt project sits next to your machine waiting for that last hem to be completed. And sometimes that last hem never gets put in before the wearer outgrows the skirt project! And sometimes when you’re digging through the pile next to the sewing machine and sneezing from all the dust, you find it, and finally hem it because you have another child who can wear the skirt project now! Not like we know anything about that, we’ve just heard rumors about other people…and stuff…okay, let’s change the subject now!
We hope you enjoyed that little t-shirt skirt tutorial tour! Fall is the perfect time to sew up (or not sew if you’re making #2 above!) some t-shirt skirts. They’re warm, they’re comfortable, they pair perfectly with some thick tights and boots and hot apple cider! Just sayin’!
Make it beautiful,
