Layered skirt made from t-shirts

I went to the thrift store the other day hoping for some deals.  This store is my least favorite thrift store, but they have good sales at times.  The sale for that day was 20 articles of clothing (without lines on their tags) for $5.50.  Pretty sweet deal...except that it didn't take me long to realize that most of the clothes I would want had lines on them and therefore were not on sale.  I did however find some clothes that I have big plans for repurposing!  Here is the first one.  I made it for me, but it would be so easy to make a kids version.

I don't have a before picture, but this skirt was 2 red shirts with a logo on the front pocket area and high on the back so I had to work around these areas.  The first shirt I cut to make the main skirt and the second shirt I cut into 4" strips and sewed on the main skirt (no hemming or serging on the layers).   The picture is from before I washed it.  After it was washed the layers curled a bit giving a new cool look.  I will try to get a picture of that soon.
I got the idea for this skirt at Make it and Love it.

eta: here is what is looks like after being washed.
