Yes I’m at it again. I buy fabric (which is the fun part) with every intention of making something useful out of it, and instead it sits on a shelf in my sewing room. I’m trying to remedy that bad habit.
So here’s the break down on the skirt~
The pattern: Free skirt tutorial found here (don’t you love free?)
Skill level : beginner
The fabric: Moda’s Rooftop Garden purchased on Etsy
Time it took to make the skirt: 5 hours
Time it took to make the skirt minus the 734 interruptions: 1 hour
Little girl wearing the skirt: I made her too (okay I had a little help)
Total cost for making the skirt: $9.25
Notes I’m making for future reference: Don’t use the 1.5 inch elastic. Stick with the 1 inch elastic, the 1.5 elastic is too bulky. Make the waist smaller. Don’t double the width of the skirt, double the width and then take off about 4 or 5 inches. The length is perfect.
