Arrow skirt costumization - January 28th 2014, 05:33 PM

So I have this shirt that I never wear because I don't like how tight it is on the bottom, an since it's a really long shirt that goes down to my tighs, I tought I would cut it and re sew it to make the bottom half skirt like. Only thing is, I don't know how and google is not being helpful. So does anyone know how to cut a long, tight shirt so the bottom half is skirt like and puffier?

Hey there,
I don't mean to sound too harsh or anything, but I personally think that won't make a very good skirt. If you were to cut out the bottom of the shirt, the shaping would be messed up and so would the style and the shirt wouldn't look that good. You could try some alternatives such as finding a skirt in the same color or design as the fabric or material? I would say that cutting out the shirt is not the smartest choice here. I hope this helps and good luck!

I'm not sure how big your shirt is exactly. If it's too small, then there's not too much you can do. Have you tried searching "up cycled t-shirt DIY"? Places like Pinterest have ideas for so many things that you can do with old clothing! On the internet, I have seen tutorials for making skirts, new shirts, and even stuffed toys with old shirts! You may not have enough fabric to only use half of the shirt, but I'm sure you could find something to do with it . Good luck and feel free to let us know how everything turns out .
