Tiered T-shirt Skirt
This tiered t-shirt skirt project came about after creating the page
skirts made from t-shirts.
asked how to create the t-shirt skirt with tiers for a teen or
an adult so I've done some experimenting.
How to Sew a Skirt with Tiers for an Adult or Teen
There is a slight change in this skirt as we won't be gathering the
layers making a more ruffled look as in the previous project. This
will make the skirt easier to create for older teens and adults,
whereas the tiered skirt on our other t-shirt skirt page works
better for smaller sizes.
- You will use 2-3 t-shirts of different colors that are all the
same size preferably large or XL t-shirts.
- Next cut 3 or 4 strips. Depending on the length you'd like,
add more strips if you'd like a longer skirt. Make your strips 7
or 8 inches wide. You can vary the widths if you would like.
Leave the side edges in tact and just cut straight across.
- Leave one strip with the bottom hem intact to be the bottom
hem of your skirt.
- Pin the bottom strip to the next strip, making sure to pin the
side stitching together. Sew two strips together.
- Continue with remaining strips.
- On top edge of skirt turn edge 1/2 inch down and then 1 inch
down. Pin along edge. Sew along edge leaving a 1 inch gap for
inserting elastic. Insert elastic and sew securely. Sew 1 inch
Need a reminder on how to insert elastic?
