I really love Tula Pink; and especially her fabric “Swarm” from the Moonshine fabric collection. I thought it would be the perfect fabric for a simple skirt. Having not much garment sewing experience, I really wanted to try my hand at something easy, just like I did when I starting quilting with simple nine-patches.
I found this pattern online, “The 5-minute Skirt.” However, it did in fact take me longer than 5 minutes to sew it up–but not much longer :). I love this pattern because it’s a flowy-skirt, not too fitted, and features a simple elastic waistband. The instructions call for a rolled hem, but I didn’t have the correct foot for that so instead I sewed the hem with a decorative and strong stitch. If you are looking on how to do a rolled hem, here’s a great tutorial I found online!
As I finished this one, I couldn’t wait to do another–I’ve made two more skirts for my daughter recently. 🙂
