This pattern will become your little girl’s favorite. It includes easy to follow step-by-step instructions and measurements to draft a pattern ranging from size 6M to 5T and takes about 2 hours from start to finish. The instructions walk you step by step through making your own ruffle skirt or skort out of a men’s t-shirt. Using a t-shirt eliminates several steps you would see in a typical skirt/skort pattern.
T-shirts have such great graphics and can make unique one-of-a-kind pieces of clothing…. you will never throw away a vintage or screen printed tee again! You can even use event t-shirts and holiday t-shirts for gifts or special occasions. Recycling t-shirts is not only an economical way to make clothing for children, but also an easy way to make comfortable, soft clothing that you could never find in a store!

My original PDF tutorial includes:

:: step-by-step instructions and measurements to draft a pattern ranging from sizes 6M to 5T (pattern is very adaptable to all sizes, finished measurements are included as well)
:: 20 pages of easy to follow step-by-step complete sewing instructions
:: 36 full color images, diagrams and drawings to demonstrate pattern specifics
:: Bonus instructions for embellishing a matching top with 5 full color images)
:: A large t-shirt (needs to be around 19 to 20” wide minimum for all sizes larger than 6-12M). When choosing your t-shirt keep in mind that men’s t-shirts tend to work the best since they do not flare at the bottom and tend to be wider.
:: Coordinating Thread (100% polyester thread is the best for sewing knits)
:: Safety Pin
:: ½ inch wide elastic for waistband (size of waist plus 1 inch)
:: Optional materials: A jersey ball point or a stretch needle for sewing knits

20 pages, 36 full color images, diagrams and drawings, 5 bonus full color images for embellishing a matching top.
