fun and easy project for those shirts you don't use any more
ok so this is my first how to. I feel like such a big kid now. Well i know most people have those shirts in their closet that are just sitting there with no purpose. So here was my useless shirt. It had such a great pattern on it I could not bear to part with it, plus my mom got it for me, but I just could not get it to fit right. So I made a skirt out of it, and here is how. so get ready, start, good luck!

    Now get ready to cut! I had tried on the shirt to see where I wanted it to lay and marked it. You can measure it too. so once you figure out how long you want it, begin to cut. I wanted to fold my top part over so I left a extra on mine you don't have to.

    once I cut it I pined it and made a seam. then i folded it over and made a band that went all the way around and also sewed that. I like how it looked inside out, but if you don't you can cut it then sew it the right way.
