Shannon, at MushyWear, was my inspiration for my skirt as she's talked so much about making her skirts from a simple yard of fabric, sewing the elastic to the fabric top, turn down and stitch. So, I had some blue woven cotton leftover from recent pants, measured the length I wanted, added in for the 1" elastic, cut a rectangle, serged the sides and the top (and lining at this point), turned down and made a casing then stitched and ran my elastic through. I was nervous about sewing the elastic straight to the skirt fabric as I sometimes like to 'shift' the elastic around in the casing to fit the curves of my body.
Make a Garment a Month Challenge. July was a crazy month so I'll just skip that and look to August's challenge.
Cost of Garment:
Fabric for top: $ 4.50
Vogue Pattern: $15.00 *I was so excited about this pattern, I paid full price*
self-drafted skirt: Free using leftover fabric(s).
Notions: @$1.00 for elastic
Hope everyone is staying cool (or warm for my Australian friends!) this weekend!
