Day 21: Sewing a Simple Skirt

Time: An hour and fifteen minutes
Listening to: Simon and Garfunkel

My friend, Bethany, and I went to the fabric store yesterday which is probably a bad idea. I think both of us left with more fabric than we intended to get!

I decided to make a skirt today with one of the fabrics that I got. I made an easy elastic skirt! I used 2 inch elastic and about a yard and a half (maybe 1/4) of fabric. It ended up being more fabric than I wanted when I tried the skirt on so I hacked some off and resewed a bit. This skirt took me longer than necessary but that was mostly due to my lack of planning!

My summery skirt to get me through the winter!

My photographer (husband) wasn't home so this is the best shot of me wearing it!

Yes, I did hang it on the wall. I like this idea....clothes as art, right?!


  1. I love this! Did you have a patter to do this? I have one on my pinterest that is very similar. nice job. :)

  2. Thanks! I've seen similar ones floating around but ended up just working through it without a pattern or studying anything too religiously!

    Good luck with your own!
