Simple Stripey Skirt

I found this fabric at Hancock’s in the remnant section and knew I had to make a skirt from it.  Unfortunately, it is a very thin, light weight cotton and there was only 1 1/3 yards of it. I figured I’d make do.

Since I had very little to work with, I couldn’t mess with hems and casings.  So, I followed angry chicken’s steps and did a rolled hem with my serger.  I also used a wide bias tape for the elastic waist casing, saving me from having a mini skirt (I didn’t have any FOE).   I also made a lining to help with the see-through-ness.   It is only attached at the waist. It was super easy, taking less than an hour, while watching project runway.

Have a very nice weekend!

    OMG! I love this skirt…last time I tried attempting a similar skirt I basically made it to fit a 6 year old. There was no way this 20-something year old butt was fitting into it. I need to work on my cutting and measurements! lOL!
