make it: appliqued t-shirt skirt

make it: reverse appliquéd t-shirt skirt

Recycled an old t-shirt and skirt into a new fashion!

Cut out a design.

Pin in your desired position on the inside of the skirt.

Sew around the edge.

On the inside, cut around the sewn area.
On the outside, cut around the sewn area, removing the skirt fabric.
Add a few more cutouts from the t-shirt
by sewing them directly to the skirt.


  1. That is sew clever…pardon my pun! I love it!


  2. would you fray check the fabric on the skirt so it wouldn’t fray? or is the fraying of the skirt meant to be? (i am meaning after the skirt is laundered.) sweet idea BTW. 🙂

  3. You could use fray check or pinking sheers to help prevent frays. You could also use dimensional glitter fabric paint to create a finished and glitzy edge. For this design, I just cut it raw and then I’ll trim the edges after I launder. I like the look of frayed or deconstructed edges. You could also zig-zag stitch the edges.

  4. Multi-layers! I love it 🙂

  5. Where are the instructions to make the t-shirt skirt? I can’t wait to make this!


    I found a T-shirt to skirt pattern:)
