Flouncy Gym Skirt

I rolled out of bed this morning and threw on some leggings and a t-shirt and thought to myself...man, I wish I had a cute little t-shirt skirt to wear over my bum, then I'd be a cute, hot mom. Okay, that was somewhat my thought process. haha!

So, I started to think about how I could make a skirt and I grabbed two of my husbands "goodwill pile" XL t-shirts and went to work, taking pictures and all that, so that I could make a tutorial for you.

And then something happened. I was utterly convinced this skirt was starting to look like crap and stopped taking pictures. You know the drill....borderline craft FAIL, because you are just making this thing up on a whim and think your "pattern in your head" will work. Let's just say....Stuff got seam ripped and I almost quit thinking this darn thing isn't worth it and Ugh...why does sewing have to be a pain in the rear sometimes...

But, then it did work out and I actually got a decent little skirt out of this whole thing.

Meet my Flouncy Gym Skirt.
This skirt has two different sizes of elastic at the waist and at the bottom around your legs and is lined with another t-shirt on the inside. Do you want a tutorial? Let me know.... a girl always needs two of everything! I think next time I will make it longer and sew a little neater, but it is fine for throwing over your bum!
