New skirt

Another stretchy knit skirt made from thrifted fabric.  I made it six panels so that it would be kinda zig-zaggy.  Figuring that out, the zig-zag thing, was kind of a pain- but it all magically worked out. Thank goodness I had some good yardage to work with.

I used my own pattern.  Divided my waist size by by six and then made the bottom edge about 15 inches wide and the length is about 19-20 inches.  I didn’t add anything for seam allowance because of the stretchiness.

It’s got some good swish & twirl factor which is a must have for summer skirts.  At first I thought the stripes might be too loud, but I love the color combo and it will go nicely with a solid brown tank and brow flats.

Oh, how I love summer sewing!

  3. WOW! that’s so neat. I think I would get so frustrated trying to make the zig zag effect. It turned out great!

    Fist of all, I love that skirt! Secondly, I am super impressed that you got all the lines to match up perfectly whent you made the zigzag. I’m only a wee bit jealous :o)

  5. Very nice! I love the feel of a swingy skirt against my legs! I think that’s why I love Flamenco.

    That is a great skirt! I love the zigzag idea, brilliant. Have fun swishing and twirling…the reason to wear a skirt in my opinion!

    For some reason this reminds me of my Grandma…. There must be a photo of her wearing a similar skirt or something somewhere.

    She was a very stylish lady 😉
