Sew for You: Flirty Skirt

While I sew often for my children and gifts, I don’t sew a lot for myself.  I’ve had this pretty, flirty fabric in my stash for a while now and haven’t been able to part with it because I love it so much.  Naturally, I decided that I needed to make something out of this one for myself.

Skirts can be super easy to make.  With this one I just measured my hips (and butt).  Took the larger of the two measurements and add just a few inches because I wanted a more flowy skirt than a fitted one.  I made the elastic for the casing a few inches smaller than my hip measurement.  You could also taper the skirt from the hip out for a flowy bottom but fitted waist/hip and add a zipper instead of elastic.  I added a fun little patchwork border to the bottom of this one to create just a bit of length and variety.
