Sew What! – the First Project PHOTO!


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.

  1. *sigh* I barely remember when my tummy was that flat… I need to find a swim team to join! Your daughter must love the skirt. It really does look like something you'd find at a teeny-bopper store. So cute!
