With this e-book, you’ll learn step-by-step how to recycle a man’s size large cotton t-shirt into a fun and funky skirt for your little girl! You can add an apron with a ruffle, ric-rac, or use your imagination to embellish it however you please. Use multiple tees to combine colors. Wear your skirt with flip flops in the summer or pair it with leggings and boots in the winter. Either way, you can feel good about your effort to “go green!” All you need are a couple measurements (which I will guide you through) and you will be able to create this from a men’s size large cotton tee for most children wearing sizes 3T-7 (general measurements are listed). For smaller toddlers, try a men’s medium tee and for infants, a men’s small. It’s all about experimenting and having fun!
Sizes that can be made: This e-book specifically looks at a toddler size 3T to a girl’s size 7, however, if you have your infant or smaller toddler’s measurements, you can use sized medium and small tees to create apron skirts for them, as well!
