I love working with t-shirt fabric. Its stretchy, already hemmed, and cheap to buy. I bought three yellow shirts from a local thrift shop, and made it into a skirt. I chose different shades to shake it up a bit. I cut the shirts horizontally just under the armpit and up the side seams so I had six rectangles. I chose four and sewed them where the side seams used to be making one large cylinder. I then gathered the top edge. I sewed a waistband in and put in an elastic. Wah la! A new, summery, happy skirt!
