Try-it-out Tuesday: easy, perfect skirt

     I hit the skirt jackpot while on my mad sewing spree a few weeks ago. This skirt tutorial is so easy and the results are lovely. The darts give this skirt a great shape and there's no messing around with buttons or zippers. I whipped this up on a Friday afternoon and have already worn it several times -- with a camisole to pick up some cheap school supplies at the sweltering-hot office supply warehouse, and a little more dressed up with a black tank for class.

  1. Ooh, pretty little fans! I love wrap skirts so much. They fit on skinny days and bloated days and every day in between.

  2. Wow :) It looks great and I checked out the tutorial :) Doesn't look too difficult :) I love the print on the skirt ;)


  3. Thanks, Erin! Yes, every woman needs a skirt with an adjustable waist ... :)

  4. Thanks, Kat! Do you have a sewing machine? :) It's amazing how this project starts out with a rectangle of fabric and ends up as a well-fitting skirt.

  5. Wow, Carrie! You did a great job. And the print is just lovely!


  6. Thanks, Gracey! I have tons of fabric stashed away, so it's fun to use some. :)
