Bias tartan skirt

Another bias skirt using the really simple, straight-forward pattern from 101 One Yard Wonders.

The pattern in the book intends for it to be unlined with the hem at the waist turned town to make an elastic casing. I wanted to line mine so I just sewed the lining to the skirt at the waist and then top-stitched a seam most of the way around about 6/8" below to make the elastic casing. Pretty easy.

I hand-sewed the hem on the skirt (not the lining).

    I purchased similar fabric to go with a killer pair of shoes. Matching plaids is not proving to be an easy job, I was up for the challenge, but it has me stumped. I was just thinking I would just wrap it around me, put in a few darts, a waist and a hem and call it a day.

    I like how you cut it on the bias, never would have thought of that. Nice job!
