T-shirt Skirt

I recently raided the drawers of my old dresser at my parents house to find old t-shirts. My family thought I was crazy when I got excited about a whole collection of different shades of blue t-shirts and stated I was going to make them into a skirt. I was inspired by this idea, found on Pinterest. I’m pleased to say that I did make those old d-shirts into a skirt and I am excited about the results.

I cut strips of the t-shirts and arranged them to have an outline of what I was doing.

I used a "gather as I go" approach to sewing the layers to the base.

The skirt reminds me of the different colors of the sky, which I like because I haven’t seen much of the sky lately 🙂 I wore it to my internship one day and even got a compliment. I guess I’m not so crazy after all.
