Tiered T-shirt Skirt



This tiered t-shirt skirt project came about after creating the page skirts made from t-shirts. I was 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.             

  • tshirt strips
  • 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 gap closed. Need a reminder on how to insert elastic?
