I found this awesome cat t-shirt at the local Goodwill and knew I needed to put him to good use. Since I rarely wear t-shirts, I decided to use the shirt to make a skirt applique. Using an oversized t-shirt I was able to make the overall body of the skirt.
Step 1: Cut both shirts to size
First I carefully cut out the cat leaving approximately an inch of excess shirt. I wanted this to add a pop to the skirt since I used contrasting colors.
Then I cut the larger shirt (mine was 4XL because I wanted it to be longer) underneath the sleeves. Doing this created a large cylinder which was consequently too large for my body. To make this more appropriately sized, I removed six inches from the side and sewed the wrong sides together to create a smaller cylinder (sadly I do not have photos of this step).
