It’s sewing 101, this skirt is so easy. I’m sure many sewers had their start with a skirt like this one….two rectangles sewn down the sides, fold down the top and stitch to make a casing for the elastic, insert elastic and hem! (I got all fancy and added inseam pockets to mine…oooooh!!)
The simplicity of this skirt is perfect for letting a great fabric shine and it is so quick to make. Perfect for beginners or for anyone wanting an easy satisfying make to coax the return of sewing mojo.
Rather than making a tutorial for this skirt…cause there are so many great ones already out there….here’s a link to one that uses much the same process that I did here.
I’m pretty proud of myself for using a remnant for this skirt. My daughter had made herself a maxi and I quickly scooped up the leftover piece which was a little over half a meter. Some of you are awesome at using up your bits and bobs of fabric in your fabric stashes with incredible creative flair. Me, not so much. I get drawn to the new and shiny. Do you use up remnants?
What do you make with yours?
