DIY Noodle Skirt

Even though I am not a big fan of them, my inspiration for this DIY were  frayed crop tops. I love the way the t-shirt material hangs when cut into several strips and sort of curls into a 'noodle'. I've seen many DIYers play with that technique to create necklaces, belts and all kinds of fun stuff but I wanted to do something different. So I decided to bring the frayed from the frayed crop top to the bottom half, in skirt form.


Stuff you need: 
Plain t-shirt
Jersey skirt
Needle and thread or sewing machine

1. Remove the top part of the tee and cut the rest of it into several strips at 2 cm intervals. The cutting lines are shown below.


2. Pin the strips to the skirt.


3. Sew them on. Make 2 rows of stitches to be secure.


4. You can either trim the 'noodles' or tie knots at the end of them to make them shorter.


Enjoy!
