Re: Favorite free skirt tutorials?

I have made this one a few times and it turns out so cute with the two layers! In fact, I think it was the first skirt I ever attempted:

Re: Favorite free skirt tutorials?

Um, this is a great thread!! I'm going to give a skirt a try for a little girl at church! I have a idea brewing with some fabric I already have. And one link lead me to how to make pants and my 3 year old is to thin for most sweat pants, so I want to get some fleece and try making him some! I have plans for more wipes and to try mama cloth. Now if only Hobby Lobby sold time.

Re: Favorite free skirt tutorials?

love these tuts!
I have been hoarding fabric and upcycling materials thinking "I will make DD/myself a skirt from that..." and only made ONE skirt in two years (tiered from an old wrap).
Love the circle skirt and shirred tshirt skirts, I am another "eh, pattern smattern" sewer and often end up with slightly-unwearable projects but I think I can do those...

Thanks!! I would let my girl wear it too, but I only have three boys. I was making it a girl at church so I could start little and work my way to a skirt for me. I'm thinking about trying to sew ribbon over it for her...I'm going to Hobby Lobby Sat, I'll see what they have.

Re: Favorite free skirt tutorials?

ok- so I tried the one where you take an old shirt and make skirts or pants from and these are what I made today!

2 piece set made from a sweater- the thread gave me heck and kept breaking and it did NOT want to "gather" but finally got it made!



And from a button down polo (it needs ironing but it's really cute and DD1 LOVED the pocket!)



Action-



And not a skirt but a pinterest project I've been meaning to finish since forever- my mom owns a monogramming business so she did the monogramming (in Oct and I finally added the tutu and ribbon today!
