The Inspired Skirt – Project 3


I ran across this fabric in the clearance aisle.  It’s certainly different, so I wasn’t surprised it was there.  It required imagination.

This pattern was easy, fun and really quick.  I finished the skirt in one day.  So here are the results!


The most challenging part of this project was finding a body suit that I liked to go with the skirt.  This search was rather annoying and in the end I found success at the Gap.  This is one of the first patterns I’ve made that I’ve already bought more fabric to make another, I LOVE this skirt.  The only deviation that I made from the pattern was I did an invisible hem.  I prefer those in dresses and skirts so I take the liberty to do them whenever I can make the swap.


Next weeks fun is the reveal of my Halloween costume.  I’ve started it already and it’s safe to say that tulle fabric and I are not going to be best friends forever.  I’m excited to see what you think of the final product.

I'm a mom to five, a wife to one and love sewing. I learned when I was a little girl but returned to it in full force in the last couple of years. The process of creating things keeps me sane. I set a lofty goal for myself, one project a week for a year. I'm four months in and it's awesome. I'm amazed at how much I've learned and improved. Set a goal to learn something new and devote weekly time to it. You will be amazed at the results.
