How to Make a skirt out of shirt sleeves with ThreadBanger
This Thread Banger video demonstrates making a skirt from men‚Äôs button down shirt sleeves. Brooksie from Haute Sew presents the technique. Two men‚Äôs button down shirts are needed. Cut the sleeves off the shirt at the seams and then split them open at the shirt sleeve seams, leaving the buttons in the middle. Pin the sleeves together along the raw edge with wrong sides together and sew them. The panels can be made to alternate colors or in color blocks depending on the style of shirts used. The size of skirt can be altered by changing the size of the shirts used, using more sleeves, or changing the width of the panels. To complete the skirt, trim edges and hem to desired length.
