Ta-da! Drum roll please! This is the first ever item of clothing I have sewn for myself. Ok, it’s just a simple elastic waistband skirt but I am proud of myself! 🙂 I love wearing skirts in the summer time, they are very light and comfortable in the warm weather. I had some polka dot fabric from Kaffe Fassett in my stash that had been originally destined for the back of a quilt but I change my mind for that quilt back (which is why I had enough fabric on hand to make a whole skirt).
I followed the tutorial from Suburbs Mama for a simple elastic skirt. I just tweaked it a little bit because I didn’t want the elastic to be visible – I added an inch and a half on to the length of fabric to cut, folded it over and topstitched it down, and then inserted the elastic. It was a super quick project, it literally took me only an hour between ironing the fabric for cutting and the finished project! I got it done during the baby’s siesta! 🙂 It’s really comfortable and floaty. Hope you like it!
