T-Shirt Skirt for Little Witches, Vampires, Pirates & Fairies

This has got to be the easiest skirt you can make.  A three year old could make this skirt.  It requires NO SEWING, uses materials that you already have in your house, and is a great way to recycle an old t-shirt.  It looks brilliant in black or stripes, and would be perfect for a Halloween witch or pirate costume.  You need:










It is so soft and comfortable... perfect for flying!


WAIT!!! GO OUTSIDE!!!  NO FLYING IN THE HOUSE!!!!!




Some Tips & Tricks:

I used a men's medium shirt in these pictures.  I think it would fit most kids aged 2 - 10.

An XXL shirt works just as well, it will be fuller and can be made a little longer.

If it is going to be worn a lot, I recommend using elastic in the waist.

A t-shirt that doesn't have seams on the sides works best.

The bottom of the skirt will tend to roll up a little bit.  If you're going for the jagged look, don't be shy, you can cut it pretty severely.

Big men's t-shirts are available in many colors at most thrift stores for around one dollar.

Use the sleeves of the t-shirt in exactly the same way to make a matching doll skirt!
