I’ve joined my bloggy friend Cynthia from The Sewing Dork, and her friend Michelle from When Wednesday Calls for Sew What!, a summer sew-along. Participants pick their fabric and tackle the challenge projects. The first project was a skirt, and my chosen fabric is cotton. I made the skirt and then it left for a while, but Teen Daughter #2 has FINALLY returned to the fold, laundered her skirt and took five minutes to model it for my camera. What a trooper!
Please Note – something this tiny only works if you are sixteen years old. If you need a little more coverge, head over to the Flickr album
and see all the AMAZING denim skirts. I especially like this
one from Michelle.
How easy is this? Peasy kind of easy. Open the inseam of a pair of jeans. Lay flat, and add an insert. Finish the hem. Here is a great tutorial, complete with pictures. Here is a fantastic tutorial from the excellent crew over at Threadbanger.
