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!


  1. I love a speedy, comfy skirt win! And crotches (trousers) scare the living daylights out of me. Well done, chook.

  2. Yay it looks great. I just got my copy of the book in the mail this week and it looks wonderful!!! I love wearing skirts even in Winter.

  3. It looks wonderfully comfortable!

  4. It's fabulous! you'll be addicted now hee hee...

  5. Great skirt. Must look to borrow that book from the library!
