This is my no-pattern, no-measuring, “here’s an obnoxious fabric that I simply MUST wear on my body, right NOW” skirt project.
Project how-to over on my blog…
rljulie commented on the project Pattern Magic Stretch knit top
Totally cute. Guess I should move that book out of my waitlist and into my shopping cart. Inspirational!

I love this fabric but wanted a way to wear whatever garment I made from it on a regular basis. I made this design to show off the texture in a subtle way, but still remain a basic garment for laye…

rljulie added the project Butterick Pants 6833, Part II
I adapted these with a bit of a “flat tush adjustment” and added a partial lining on the inside.
Oh, and belt loops, too.

I love this! I’ve seen a variation on this fabric, but I think the one you found is prettier…and you made good use of it. Nicely done.
