basic old tee + knit yardage
Simple How-To : Trim the top to desired length - the best way to do this is to try the tee on and pin where you want it to end in the front and then in the back. Also, decide if you need to take it in at the sides if you want a fitted look. Take it off and cut, adding in seam allowance. I use one piece for the skirted bottom section, just gather it a bit in the center and then sew all the way around the edges, stopping at center back. Try it on and figure out where to sew the back seam. *I like to use a dress form for that part. Sew down the back. Try it back on and decide how long you want it to be in the front and the back. Cut and hem. Use the leftover tee bottom as a belt. I sewed right sides together and made a tube, flipping it to hide the seams. I secured the belt in 4 places, center back, center front and side seams. That way I'm not always fidgeting with it to get it to lay properly. So Comfy!
