Well guys while I'm roughin it this week you get guest posts from some of my favorite blogs and some new friends. Today I'm excited for you to meet Doranda from Watch out for the Woestmans. She is a doll and so are her kids! Make sure to check out her blog! Thanks Doranda!
Hi Guys, it's Doranda from Watch out for the Woestmans, I was thrilled when Nikki asked me to write a guest post for her while she is away. I love seeing her outfits and reading her blog.
I made this really cute skirt out of a $2.50 tee shirt I bought at JoAnn's! It was much easier than the last skirt and I probably like it better because it actually fits. It is comfy and I like it because while wearing it I can relax instead of spending the day pulling at it. This is pretty easy and I think any beginner can do it!
Cut the tee shirt around the skirt giving yourself a half inch extra on the sides and 1 full extra inch on top.
Also make sure the top of your skirt goes in about an inch widthwise for your waistband.
Below you can see my pieces.
2) Cut the bottom of the shirt off and make it about 2-4 inches wide (depending on what you have left and how wide you want the ruffle). Then cut 2-4 inches off the end of each sleeve. You should now have three loops all the same width.
Cut each loop one time down the middle so you now have three strips.
4) Now back to the skirt. Pin right sides together and sew down both sides leaving a 1/2 seam.
