The Shirt Skirt - Sew Like My Mom  September 6, 2013 – 11:21

July 28,2010I’m so excited to post about this!

When I met Dana,I fell in love with the skirt she was wearing. She made it herself (obviously) and she showed us how simply she’d shirred the waistband. The next day,during the mystery workshop at Whipstitch,we were encouraged to use thrifted tees. I’m devastatingly terrified of knits so I steered clear and made my (award winning) cotton fabric dress. But I was inspired.

I developed an idea in my head I thought just might be crazy enough to work. The next chance I had to steal away alone,I made a beeline for Goodwill. I found exactly what I was looking for,got my purchase for half-price,and excitedly headed home.

The Hubs thought I was a little crazy when I explained my idea to him. I measured,cut,and finally,with trepidation,I started sewing. Less than 30 minutes later I was wearing my Shirt Skirt!! That’s right–I made a skirt for myself from a man’s tshirt!!

It’s the easiest thing in the world to do! And I just can’t stop making them.

They’re perfect for summertime. They’re perfect for when you’re pregnant,they’re perfect for after you have the baby. They’re perfect if you change size or shape or hate your clothes. They’re just simply PERFECT. Comfortable,casual,and cheap.

I wore the green and white one to Sofie’s birthday party. And the navy blue one to a casual family wedding. I made 2 others for a cousin.

I had 2 women in Walmart stop me to tell me how comfy my skirt looked and when I told them how I made it,they demanded I call Rachael Ray immediately!

The process is so easy. I can whip one of these up in less than 30 minutes. Wanna make some of your own? GREAT! Here’s how I do it.

I do my shopping at Goodwill for 1 reason. Their tshirts are $2.09. But they tag everything with a colored tag and every week a different color is half price.So I usually seek out shirts that are the weekly color to score them for $1.05! So those skirts on my clothesline? Cost me $4.20 total to buy. Even if I find a shirt I have to have,it’s $2. You can’t go wrong for $2!!

So,get your super cheap thrifted shirt. The bigger you buy it,the better. The green and light blue shirts were large size Large’s. The Navy blue was a Tall XL,and the pink shirt was a 3XL! It’s hard to find them with stripes,so I’m always drawn to those first. If you really want a pattern,check out the polos. They’re more expensive,but if you get them half price,they’re still in the $2-$3 range. As with anything you get second hand,check it out to make sure it’s not faded,full of holes,or stained. I like to wash mine before I begin sewing.

Need help finding a nice shirt to match a skirt

I have. Skirt is long, black cotton (not shiny) with cream/off white stitching around the top and bottom. Can't find a shirt to go with, must have sleeves to elbows and no cleavage showing. Size 20/22. Wearing to a semi-formal event.
Ideas? I can't even figure out where to start with what would look good. The store I got it at doesn't sell it anymore, so I can't link it for you, unfortunantly.
Thanks.

The fact that it might be windy also applies to very short skirts. Little girls might look cute in flirty little skirts, but they could blow up in the wind.
