Style mavens notwithstanding, I've been having fun making skirts, and that's what counts. Heidi doesn't ever have to know - unless my BFF Martha sends her this link :)
Anyhow, here's another skirt I made with vintage sheet fabric. This one is based on the Saturday Market Skirt in Sandi Henderson's Sewing Bits and Pieces: 35 Projects Using Fabric Scraps
Because I'm a "bit" (ok, a foot or so) shorter than the model in the book, I went with only three tiers instead of four. I liked how the pattern was written, that you use X number of squares for each section. Your size determines the size of the squares. Brilliant!
The pattern calls for a drawstring waist, but I decided on elastic to be more comfy (hey, I'm over 40 - it's all about comfort now). I also made the first tier a bit less full, and from one solid strip of fabric. I also made an underskirt, so I don't need a slip (see comfort note above).
I'm so excited that I'm still learning new things in sewing and crafting - wait till you hear what else I learned this week - I'll talk about it on the podcast - promise!
Speaking of podcast, I've been curious - how many of my blog readers also listen to my podcast? It's no big deal either way, I'm just wondering. To satisfy my curious brain, please take this little poll:
