So, around Easter time, I was ready with a pattern and some gorgeous fabric to make a skirt for me. Unfortunately, my gorgeous fabric was found before the pattern and I didn't even think to take into account the embroidery already on it.
With less than two weeks until Easter, I was sitting on my floor with my fabric spread out brainstorming what to do.
Then I hit the internet and searched and found a great website about how to make a skirt using your favorite skirt.
It was so great, I can't find the website now.
But, let me tell ya this, if you've made a skirt before, then it's a piece of cake to make.
Here's what I did in a nutshell. I took my most favorite skirt of all time (found at Goodwill no less).
Anyways, I folded it in half. And cut out two panels following along my favorite skirt (on the fold of the fabric)
After that, I just sewed it like a regular skirt. I added the zipper in on the side and some lining to help with the modesty issue. It's linen fabric and a little thin.
I wish I could get step by step instructions, but honestly, I have no clue how I did it. I followed some of the tutorial I found online and used some wisdom gained from sewing zippers with lining.
And I goofed on it a little but not so much that anyone will notice.
Oh, do you want to see the final results?
That'll come tomorrow!
