Make a T Shirt into a Skirt courtesy designer John Patrick ...

Place your T-shirt on a flat surface.
Mark off the desired length of your skirt from the shirt’s hem up to the underarms.
Chop off the top of the T-shirt (including sleeves) with scissors so that you’re left with a rectangular tube of fabric

At the end of the tube that is not hemmed, grasp one layer of the fabric and cut a small slit about 12 cms down one side of the fabric.
Only cut one layer. 
Leave the layer that will be the back of the skirt intact.
Grasp the two ends of the fabric and tie them together.
Tie them as tightly or as loosely as you like till you get the perfect fit
You could take old silk scarves or printed fabrics.
Go really wild and use ribbons, trim, and scraps.
Isn't this fabulous, so easy!
