Step 2: Draw up your pattern

Before chop up your T shirt...it's always better to draw up our pattern...else you just might be just chopping and then throwing up your baggy T!

Step 3: Cut Up!

We will be using the bottom for the top ...so turn your T upside down
Measure the length from upper bust to waist...add 1" for sewing and cut up.
cut the rest up to form a rectangle for the skirt bit.

Step 4: Add Your Box Pleat!

Using the bottom part for the top of your sexy top...start making box pleats
...pleat till you get the measurement of 1 or 2" larger than your bust
tack and sew at both the top and bottom.

Step 5: The Skirt

Place wrong side facing each other with the top being about 1" from the edge..sew. Flip over and sew the other side too (as you would notice the other side will also have the 1" overlap)
Now spread open and sew the flap so that you may send a cord through.
Please check picture!
Once done..
Place your top near the skirt...place the cord area on either side...now make large box pleats so that the skirt will come to the width of the top...pin away!
Now place the right side of top and skirt facing each other and join both by sewing around.
Almost done!
