Alabama Chanin style skirt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I went on a trip and arrived without any clothes. I was unable to find a reasonably priced skirt on short notice, so I sewed this from 4 men's T-shirts in my hotel room that evening. I did the embellishment after i got back from the trip. It is a work in progress, as i plan to add more embellishment to it.

What you will need

  • This skirt was hand sewn from 4 men's T-shirts
  • upholstery thread
  • and chop beads.

Q&A with Lynda W

DrFun asked:
Wow - talk about resourceful! Love all your beads on the ruffle - did you sew the ruffle down first, or do you ruffle and bead at the same time?
Lynda W answered:
Thank you! I basted the ruffle and then sewed it permanently using the beading stitches, removing the basting thread after I was finished.
