Freckles in April: Spring Skirt Number 1

Spring Skirt Number 1

Wearing: Hanes t-shirt, skirt by me, thrifted shoes. Come to think of it, I'm pretty sure this whole outfit cost less than $10


Operation Make a Whole Bunch of Skirts has commenced. I got like 5 yards of this fabric on super clearance at Joanns forever ago and wasn't sure what to do with it. It was a great "ah-HA!" moment when I pulled it out of my stash while looking for a good skirt fabric.

I used this skirt tutorial from Freshly Picked. My fabric is a stretchy knit and it worked fabulously (plus: no hemming!) so I'd say it's a good tutorial that will work with whatever type of fabric you have on hand.


I think it makes me look a little wide but eh. It's super comfortable, it has a pocket and I love it. I've got like 3 or 4 more fabrics that are lookin' good for this pattern.

Also, I'd say the Skirt Party is a go! I'm super excited. I'm going to try and pin down details via e-mail, so if you're interested in coming make sure you get your e-mail address to me!

  5. It has a pocket! You are amazing! I can hardly sew on a button, and you made a skirt with a pocket. That is so sweet.
