Re: How to Make a Two-Color A-Line Tee Skirt

I made one of these last night - I love it!!! It is, without a doubt, the most comfortable skirt in the world. It took me less than an hour from start to finish.

I discovered that if I stacked up all four rectangles face up before I made the diagonal cut then I could eliminate the crooked bottom edge altogether and have the colors still alternate properly. I just stitch the diagonal sides to diagonal sides and straight-grain sides to straight-grain sides.
