I Made a Skirt! Sew What?
My friend Karen, has been having a little sew-along on her blog. Making skirts using Prints Charming fabric and instructions from the book Sew What Skirts. I already made a wrap skirt using this book, but I just don't have enough skirts in my wardrobe, so I thought it might be a good idea to join in.
I don't have any Prints Charming fabric, and I wanted to make sure I had the fit right so I started with some light weight denim from my stash - I have loads of this, so no immediate fear of running out. You can't really tell in the photos, but it has a cross hatch texture through it.
I'm pretty happy with the fit of this skirt, there isn't much that can go wrong with a skirt, unlike pants. I now have a skirt that is comfortable enough to wear around the house, and nice enough to wear down the street (maybe with a nicer top than the daggy old maternity one I am wearing in the photo). The best part is, it took hardly any time, and I now have a pattern to make MORE SKIRTS!
