Six Sweet and Simple Skirts that You Can Sew from Recycled Fabrics

t-shirt to skirt tutorialIf you can make a skirt from a button-down shirt, then you can sure as heck make a skirt from a T-shirt! This T-shirt to skirt tutorial makes a skirt that’s a little more rock star than its high-brown button-down skirt cousin, so feel free to cut up all your old rock concert T-shirts to make these.

Afraid of sewing jersey knit? Don’t be! I have three go-to stitch settings for jersey knit that make sewing it a breeze.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
