Aloha! Surprise.....I've made another skirt! This is made with another 2 yard cut of knit fabric that I received from Girl Charlee a while ago. This fabric is kind of thin, so I lined it with a cheap polyester knit. The two changes I made to the pattern were to shorten it by about 18 inches, if I am remembering correctly, and I used 2" wide elastic inside the casing instead of 1 1/2" wide, since that is what I had on hand. I made view D.
This is a really fast pattern to make. I cut all the pieces out from a single layer of fabric to have a better chance of matching at the sides. But, I didn't get too worried about totally matching the stripes. I normally use my coverstitch machine to hem my knits, but this time I used a zig zag stitch which disappears nicely into the print.
I am wearing the skirt with a rtw top from Old Navy. I am looking forward to the day when I can take on some more complicated projects, but for now I am happy to have the creative juices flowing again with quick, satisfying projects like this. Thanks for stopping by!
