How to Make a Two-Color A-Line Tee Skirtcomments (21) June 28th, 2013
Continue across for each panel, joining the next one to the end, one after another. Then join the last and the first together, the same as all the rest. After this, you can decide how much more you want to do to finish your skirt, if anything.
The bottom edges will be all crooked; I like to cut each panel's bottom straight across and leave the edges raw, since T-shirt fabric doesn't unravel. If you want to sew a hem, go for it!
I used my rotary cutter for this part, since I don't trust my hands to cut perfectly straight with scissors. I just lined up my straightedge from the bottom of one side to the bottom of the other side and cut a narrow triangle off each panel.
If your skirt fits well, you can be done now, or just sew the top edge under to make a hem. Since T-shirts are knit fabric, the stretchiness means you can make the simplest skirt ever, with no zipper, buttons, drawstring, snaps, etc., which also means it's the most comfortable skirt ever. But, if it's a little too big and you're worried it won't stay on securely, it's easy to add a simple drawstring or elastic band. I solved this problem on mine by folding the top edge under, sewing a hem, and threading a piece of elastic tape through. I sewed the elastic ends together and sewed the hole in the hem closed with the elastic inside.
