I made a skirt !

Friday, October 7, 2011

My Grandma will be so proud of me! I had bought some jersey knit fabric awhile ago with plans to make a dress. After thinking about it I decided a skirt was the way to go... much easier more versatile.

This project needed to be simple which means no elastic or zippers. I found this tutorial from iCandy handmade. It was so easy to follow! Although I must have had extra stretchy fabric because I followed the directions exactly but in the end I had to cut off an extra 6 inches from the waist.

I had Hubby take some pictures of me and my creation. We had lots of fun being silly.

It was a tad bit windy.

Best part about this skirt - it feels like I am wearing pajamas. Next best part - it is flouncy and fun to spin in.

My next project with this fabric will be a little more ambitious - a top. I probably won't have a nice tutorial to go off of and will have to make it up as I go. That should be interesting.
