I stumbled across this adorable lucky girl tee at Target last month and thought it would be the prefect start to a nice easy upcycle for St. Patrick's day. I bought the smallest size which was a 4/5 so this year it has a totally 80s drop waist oversized vibe but I'm hoping to get to years of wear out if it. The little bit of rainbow stripe fabric came in a scrap box that I won and the green interlock is the last of a 2 yard cut for Chez Ami.
I began by taking the bottom hem out of the tee so that I did not have to cut the picture.
Next measure the front bottom of the shirt from one side seam to the next. I'll be calling this measurement A.
Cut two waist band pieces that are A+.5in wade and about 3in long.
Then divide A by 3.14 to get the inner radius of the skirt. Will call this R.
Fold your skirt fabric in half then in half again just like in this picture.
Then measure from the circle to how ever long you want your skirt to be and make another set of dots.
Finally give the dress to the lucky little twirly girl and watch her go.
I love how this style of skirt moves when she runs, jumps, and twirls.
