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.
