DIY No Sew Skirt
I love sewing especially when I get to make cute stuff for my daughter, it makes me so happy to see her wearing clothing that I made with my hands. But I don’t always have so much free time for sewing and this is when quick projects like this DIY No Sew Skirt come in handy.
My husband had this Abercrombie & Fitch long sleeve t-shirt he stopped wearing because his arms became too big (he loves his weights!). But I really love the t-shirt and I hated to see it go to waste so I thought I should try and make something out of it, for my daughter, of course. So this lovely, easy and super quick DIY no sew skirt came to mind.
To make this skirt without sewing I used fabric glue, Fray Check and ribbon and it all took about 15 minutes! I think the t-shirt was a little bit too big for my daughter though. So if you decide to make this diy no sew skirt for a little girl make sure the size of the t-shirt you use is small or medium otherwise there will be too much bulk.
Also make sure you can get the length needed from below the arms to the bottom hem. If you are a petite I believe you can easily make this skirt for yourself too!
