No Sew Skirt from Shirt

.


This is the lazy persons guide to making a quick simple skirt. All you need is a t-shirt, scissors and a string (from an old hoodie or pyjama bottoms or a long shoe-lace)
Get a shirt that is a bit loose.
.
Cut it straight across under the arm-pits. (can make it ever shorter later if you're that way inclined).
Turn the piece you've cut upside down.
.
.
cut two holes in the hem (big enough for the string to pass through).
Thread the string through one hole out the other (with the help of a safety pin)
.

The hem that was the bottom of the shirt is now the top of the skirt.
This will hold the skirt up, once tied. 
.
.
et voila! This took all of about 5 minutes. 
You may need to stretch out the bottom slightly if you don't like it too clingy. Use a printed 
shirt for more interest, but the print will be upside down, be warned! Or you can sew a hem on the 
other end, if you can be bothered getting the machine out and threading it and such...
...Or just make yourself some tea.
