I found this wonderful fabric in the clearance section of my local Joanns, they only had one yard left! It was just perfect for my waist size. It came with a border on all four sides, but I only utilized one side. This was the first time I’ve sewn with this style of elastic band and so please don’t judge my slightly-uneven stitching line too harshly :) The skirt is fully lined and hemmed with a clean-finish hem. The fabric was heavy and solid enough that I thought I couldn’t get away with just doing a rolled hem on the serger. I am in love with the colors and print of the skirt, I’ve been enjoying the recent Native American print trend and this was the closest I could find at Joann’s. I think I may have to print my own if I want a Native American print in cotton…
We took all these photos at the New Guinea Garden at Stanford University – you should visit if you are in the area!
Also! I am posting my first how-to with this skirt (though there may already be similar ones on the site) because I want to get more involved with sharing pattern development and techniques.
