Now that Kelley is back on his feet, I’ve found time to sew! Last week I made a list of projects I wanted to complete and first up were my nieces skirts.
Pattern: loosely based on this
Fabric: unknown fiber content – both purchased at Fabrix
Time to Complete: about 2 hours
Cost: less than $5 with plenty of fabric leftover
My niece received her skirt in the mail last week and we confirmed that the waist and the length were just right for her and her sister. So with the same general measurements, I went to work this morning on a skirt made from a medium weight pink plaid with a sheer overlay. The skirt body is a simple rectangle with side seams (french, of course) that I gathered into a waistband casing. I then thread elastic into the waistband for more gathering. Nothing fancy but very fun to make. I love it because it’s girly with an edge (in a kindergarten-rock-star sort of way).
