Hey Everyone! The leaves are changing here in North Carolina and it is starting to get a little colder each day. I thought, that I would share a fun DIY fall fashion project with you today. This DIY Stenciled T-shirt Skirt is super easy to make and the only fabric you need to make your own is a large t shirt. Sounds cool, right?
You will need: a large plain T shirt | scissors | Americana Multi-Surface paint | Americana Decor Ikat Polka Dot Stencil | pouncer | permanent fabric tape | elastic
Step 1: Cut the shirt in a straight line all the way across under the armpits.
Step 2: Stencil the design onto the t shirt using the pouncer and a pouncing motion. You will definitely want to put something like cardboard between the shirt to prevent the paint from bleeding through to the other side. The Multi-Surface paint works great on fabric!
Step 3: After the paint has dried, flip the fabric inside out. Next apply the permanent fabric tape all the way around the top (the side with out the seam) EXCEPT be sure to leave about an inch with no tape.
Step 4: Remove the backing from the permanent fabric tape and fold over the top about 2 inches. This will create a one inch wide opening at the top.
Step 5: Measure the elastic to fit around your waist and add an inch to that measurement. Then feed it though the opening and tie the two ends of the elastic together at the end.
Wasn’t this such a fun project? I love transforming everyday objects into awesome new things like this DIY stenciled skirt! It is so comfy and has already become one of my fall essentials. By using a smaller shirt, you could make this for kids too. With all the stencils that DecoArt offers, you could make a whole closet of unique no sew skirts!
