My first sewing project for the fall was a simple and quick project, in fact it took me about an hour to whip up.
The skirt is a gathered skirt in a navy twill, found in the scrap bin, and with a wide elastic in the waist. So, after attaching the waistband there’s just one seam to sew and then the hem. That’s it.
By stretching the elastic as I sewed, the skirt got perfect gathers. I’m willing to bet that this skirt will get a lot of wear in the upcoming fall and winter season.
Pattern: Tutorial from here (if the name of the skirt hasn’t led you on, that link will be a hint as to what I will be working on this fall)
Difficulty: Simple. One seam, one hem and attaching an elastic. It doesn’t get much simpler than that.
Alterations: Mine is longer.
Fabric: Navy twill from Stoff och Stil
Notions: Wide elastic, thread
Price: Fabric 42 SEK (€4.86). Elastic 25 SEK (€2.90), Thread 1 SEK (€0.12). Total 68 SEK (€7.88).
Project Rating: Last time I was pregnant I lived in two pairs of maternity jeans. This time I want to change things up a bit and this skirt is my first step, and I think some more skirts are in store for me. I can’t wait to try this out when I’m a bit bigger.
(It’s a bit scary since I won’t do my ultrasound scan until late October, until then I can just believe that everything is OK)
