DIY out-dated tshirt into lovely pencil skirt.




The perfect lace pencil skirt all from a thrifted shirt and oh so comfortable.

Supplies: 
-thrifted shirt: needs stretch. Think textures like lace, crochet, bold t-shirt prints. 
-Sewing machine



Before: this tshirt was outdated and needed a revamp. I loved the pattern of the lace and decided it would be a great pencil skirt.



Cut the sleeves and collar line.



Sew a tube that fits your waist and hip measurements snuggly. Trim the excess from the seams.


Sew the elastic waistband to match your waistline on the skirt.



Top stitch along the edge. Trim an excess fabric.



Add a bow...

  12. Pencil skirts look fab on you, I remember the last skirt you made out of a shirt, it was awesome too. This one is different but also so cool, I love the waist you made with that bow.
