A T shirt skirt. My Grandmother in law gifted me a whole heap of cotton knit fabric, so I thought I would follow the tutorial and make a skirt out of it. And I love it! Because it fits me! Although it took a bit of tweaking to make that happen.
I cut and overlocked the panels for the skirt together using the instructions from the tutorial. But when I tried it on, it was far too large. This is a recurring theme in my sewing. I'm guilty of generous cutting and tiny seam allowances. So when I measured the waistband, I cut it to my measurements without adding a seam allowance. I had to gather the panels a little, but it turned out perfectly.
Its a great fit, and I really like it. DH suggested that a) it was too young for me, and b) it made me look like a bumblebee, but I still think its fabulous and that's the main thing. In case you're wondering, the stripes are mismatched deliberately.
Obligatory belly shot. P decided to be in the photos, so she ran in every time I stood at the wall. She thought it was great fun.
