I found a t-shirt the other day with a great black and white print. I liked the fact that it was made from a cotton/lycra blend so it had lots of comfy stretch to it. The white banded neckline seemed like it would be a perfect detail for a new skirt. So I went to work and in a few easy steps this is what I came up with...
The white banded neckline makes a perfect slit for the back of the skirt!
This is where it began...
One cut across the top and one cut on each side was all it took. I might add, though, that in order to get the width for the bottom of the skirt (unless I really wanted it to be a pencil skirt), I had to cut into the sleeves a bit. This created a slightly flared detail on each side of the skirt, but with the print you can't even tell its there.
I used the original hem to encase the elastic. I simply cut my waist elastic in half, then threaded it through the front and back skirt pieces separately.
Then it was just a matter of stitching up the side seams and doing a small rolled hem. Super simple!
I like to link to these great parties!
