Fabulous Simple Skirt Tutorial

7 July 09

I started making a skirt this past weekend, hoping it would be ready in time for me to wear it for July 4th festivities. I used a fabric that I’ve had in my stash for awhile, from one of my favorite fabric designers, the Alexander Henry Pink Zinnia, which I think I bought from Sew, Mama, Sew! (they don’t seem to have this one in stock right now).

Anyway, it was a flop. I made a mistake, and was too annoyed and too short on time to fix it to wear the skirt that night. This may have had something to do with the fact that I started the skirt that afternoon :u)

Fortunately, the wonderfully talented and creative Grosgrain has written a wonderfully simple tutorial on sewing a simple skirt that I hope will help me to pull this off the discard pile. I’ll keep you updated, but it would be a shame for this beautiful fabric to languish, don’t you think?

  1. That is beautiful fabric! I am drooling. I have a book called Sew What! Skirts that is very cool. Easy directions for making an a-line skirt. I made one for Carolyn last year and am waiting to find some great fabric for myself! Can’t wait to see it when it’s fixed!

  2. Every university even school always try to build the skills of creativity in their students by doing some activities like this. This post has a photo regarding the arts and creativity, we can say that this could be from any student and early age of professional to increase the creative abilities. I like it and want to say, the designer that you have taken a nice decision to use it on the fabric, it will be great attractive.
