Share an idea with you

Make a skirt from a Tshirt/polo shirt

I love this idea and want to share it with you all.

Make a short skirt for a little girl.

You will need measurements of waist and desired skirt length.

Take a XL T or polo shirt - one that is still in good condition but has become very wide at the hem. You know what I mean - we all have them. The more designs and colours the better. Lay it flat on the table and draw a line from one armpit to the other. Cut along this line. Take the bottom piece aside and measure. Cut to desired length plus casing allowance off cut edge. Fold over a casing along the cut edge, wide enough for some wide elastic. Sew it down . Don't forget to leave an opening to thread the elastic through. Measure the waist and cut elastic - thread in through the casing and sew ends together. There you have it - a recycled shirt skirt. Your little girl will love it. Have Fun. MJ

    Hi there, I wanted to give you feedback about the Jerusalem artichokes, but for some reason, when I go to your profile, there is no where for me to click to give feedback and rating :(

    I received them, and wanted to say thank you so much! it was really wonderful of you to send them to me, and spend the money to do it..I would really like to pay you back for the postage.
