How to Make a Two-Color A-Line Tee Skirtcomments (21) June 28th, 2013
Use the same idea, but thread a piece of ribbon or strip of fabric through the hem instead of elastic, cut two holes in the front or side of the hem, and you've got a drawstring! I used that idea with a necktie on this version of the skirt:
This other one I made fit just right without any additions, so I just folded the top edge under and sewed a hem.
If your skirt happens to turn out too small in the waist, that's an easy fix! Since the skirt gets wider as it goes down, you'll just need to cut it at whatever point it's the right size. Also, if you want a shorter skirt, just cut it up from the bottom wherever you want. If you do either of these modifications, be sure to either sew a hem or relock the bottoms of the seam stitches where you cut so they don't unravel.
One more thing-don't throw away those leftover T-shirt scraps! There are so many crafty things they'll be great for! I love using T-shirt fabric for small projects (like my cuffs!) and embellishments like appliqués. T-shirt sleeves are actually a good amount of fabric; if you collect several of them, you could turn them into a patchwork quilt or something else crazy cool! Just keep them in your stash and the inspiration will come!
