I love all of the things you can make from a pile of castoffs…..
simple tiered T-shirt skirt.
Old flannel shirts to….
Cute flannel skirt.
The same pattern applies to both skirts.
I made a very high tech pattern using the girls notebook paper. The first tier is 7 inches tall by 6 3/4 inches wide. Second tier is 8 1/2 inches tall by 8 inches wide. Third tier is 10 1/2 inches tall by 11 inches wide. You can adjust this pattern easily to suit your own shape. Cut 8 squares for each row. A total of 24.
Sew the tiers together in vertical order adding tucks to ease in the extra fabric right sides together. I wanted to do this on my serger, but it was not co-operating. I used my Viking Mega Quilter and it worked just fine. If you own a serger, you can sew this in 20 minutes.
Now take your 8 vertical rows and sew them together right sides facing each other.
You should have something that resembles this….Now make a tunnel that will hold 1 inch elastic leaving a small opening. Measure you waist, cut elastic and insert using a safety pin. Sew ends together and sew opening closed.
Carol was kind enough to style a couple of outfits with the finished skirts…Thanks Carol!
