My first foray into sewing, and I think they turned out alright! Each skirt took about 2 hours, but I am pretty slow. Oh! And most have pockets! Super handy!I’m not sure if I like the white chiffon one (last picture) enough to wear in public though. I tried to make it more fitted than the others but its a little wonky, the fabric itself kind of makes one look lumpy, and i only had the shorter amount of brown fabric to go underneath, does it look silly? WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Based on the pattern/instructions given at http://whatwouldanerdwear.blogspot.com/2010/05/lesson-plan-worlds-easiest-skirt.html and http://freshlypicked.blogspot.com/2010/02/elastic-waist-skirt-tutorial-mama.html.
Some are super comfy jersey knits, cotton, one silk. The black chiffon-like flowered material was originally a extra large womens blouse from value village, as was the white textured chiffon material! reduce reuse recycle!
