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!
Sip cocktails by the fire in faux fur, patterned silks, and more luxurious fabrics.
