Sewing Project #2

Today was my day off and I had an itch to try a skirt I have been wanting to make. It is definitely an easy project. But I am not going to lie and say I didn't have hiccups. It's all a part of the learning process. :) So with that being said, give it a try if you are looking for a project and don't make the same mistakes I did. ha ha I had the elastic in wrong so I had to flip it and re-pin it, then I did the 2ND, zigzag, reinforcement stitch wrong and had to unpick it. Ya I am that stupid... lesson learned!

I got the tutorial HERE and HERE. The first link is the original with pockets and the second link is without pockets and with a little more description on the steps.... I used the second.

Got my diet pepsi and supplies from Hobby Lobby and we are ready to go!

Cutting out the fabric.

Pinning the elastic, incorrectly ha ha


I made Chris take this and he was complaining because I made him take it over and over, so I'm just stuck with this one.
Do you like the makeshift headband? Ignore the bare feet.

  2. Cute!! you are so good and very crafty!

  3. My mamma has been making skirts like this for my niece like every third day...they are so simple and cute. I wish I could get away with wearing them. Yours is so cute on you!

  4. Woot Woot! You go girl! I love seeing your projects! You're on your way to becoming a pro-sewer!

  6. That fabric is to die for!! I'm so proud of ye and your sewing skills! Love it!
