The “Plain Black” Skirt
When I saw circle skirts appear on the weekly themes I really wasn’t sure what to think. I’m also doing the sewing along with Project Run and Play this time around so I made Emily a dress based on a circle skirt tutorial a few weeks ago. I had never considered making one for myself though. I ended up deciding that I wanted to make a nice simple black skirt. I know that’s not super exciting but it will be a nice basic addition to my wardrobe.
I used 2 yards of black ITY that I originally bought to make a maxi skirt. I made it as long as I possible could without adding side seams. It hits just below my knees which I think is kind of a fun length. It drapes and twirls wonderfully and I’m pretty sure it will get a good bit of wear around here though strangely enough I don’t have many summer shirts that go with black. Go figure I guess I’ll just have to make some.
Here are some twirl shots.
