The “Strawberry” Skirt
This is mostly just an accountability post. I haven’t missed a challenge yet and while I’m sure I will at some point I did sew something green or wall at least partially green this week and so I wanted credit for doing so. In a funny way this little skirt actually represents part of what I love about sewing. You see Emily found the tee she is wearing at Target and loved it. Truth be told so did I but I did not love the super short shorts that matched. I actually didn’t see anything in the girl’s department that worked for me as a bottom so I said lets go to JoAnn’s and I’ll make you a skirt. It was crazy crowded there so I think it took longer to buy the fabric then it did to sew the skirt and she was still able to wear it the next day.
Fabric: 1 yard Tutti Frutti fabric on sale for $6.00
Pattern: No pattern its 4 rectangles. Next time I’ll do a yoke but oh well this worked.
Notions:thread and elastic both from my stash
Time to complete: To sew 45min tops. To buy the fabric at least an hour.
First worn: Thursday to the Y and out to lunch for Strawberry crepes.
Wear again? Without a doubt.
Total price: $6 so a good bit less then the unacceptable short shorts as a bonus.
