This past weekend I went down to Thanksgiving Point to see all the bloggers at the SNAP conference. Since this might be the only time I saw them, I wanted to look cute. So I decided to make myself a grey skirt to wear there. The funny thing is...... I didn't wear it. I got there and saw that everyone was in jeans I felt like I would be a little dressy. Plus, it was the time of the month and I hate wearing dresses/skirts when it's the time. So I wore capris instead of the skirt. But I still plan on wearing this outfit to church or some other outing some time :)
This is how I made it:
I cut three pieces of fabric (I used a knit that is a little shiny). I measured my hips, added 4 inches and then divided by 2. Then I measured how long I wanted it to be. So I cut the pieces 20"x24".
I took one of the pieces and cut it like this.
I sewed all three of the pieces together, having the cut piece in the front.
Using a straight stitch, I sewed the top of the strip and then pulled the bobbin thread to gather it.
I pinned and sewed the ruffle to the front piece.
Then I sewed the ruffle all around the bottom on the skirt.
Once the ruffles were on, I added some elastic to the top (sorry forgot that picture).
And that's it. Super easy!!
I had to show off my flats, I got these at DI for $2, I was super excited about them :)
