Recycled T-Shirt Skirt

I made a skirt!

I was really inspired by Urban Revision's new bleach dyed tops and scarves so I decided to give it a go. I took a large black t-shirt and folded it I normally would to create a spiral tie dyed look and dipped it in some diluted bleach for a few minutes on each side. The look came out much more subtle but I like it. I cut off the sleeves and neckline and sewed the sides together...tapering near the bottom to add more shape. I followed this tutorial from Burda Style to sew on the elastic waist. Excuse the uneven messy stitching haha, this is my first time sewing with elastics. What a tricky little fabric you are!


  1. I just clicked over from WhipUp and WOW! I'm so glad I did. It's gorgeous here. Off to explore the rest of your entries...

  2. I had to post a comment because I just adore this skir for two reasons:
    1. It was made from a previously owned item - A T-Shirt! Love it!
    2. I would sooooo wear this skirt:)

  3. Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from
    an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?
    I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thanks
