Simple Jersey Skirt

Like many of you, I get a little obsessed with Pinterest sometimes. Lately one girlfriend and I have been passing back and forth pins for t-shirt crafts. Finally she challenged the two of us to actually start making some! With the pressure off from my giant test, I thought I’d share some of the crafts I’ve been doing. This one requires absolutely no sewing, which was awesome. I picked up the tee for this craft from the thrift store for a whopping $0.50 and had the ribbon in my stash.

Simply cut a t-shirt in a straight line beneath the armpits. Discard the top half. Snip vertical slits in the hem.

Feed a ribbon into one hole, through the hem and out the other slit. To make this easier, attach a safety pin to the end of the ribbon and tug that through the fabric. Once you’re done, tie knots on the end of the ribbon.

Spill a few drops of water on the skirt, flip it over and wonder what the heck you’ve made. Then put it on, admire your handiwork and take a poorly lit photo of it.

  1. It looks great ! I tried a Pinterest shirt recently… it was a fail. But to be fair I think the old shirt I used was too small and needed to be a baggy mens one.
