Here is my latest sewing project. I got the fabric on sale at Joanns when they had 70%off their spring fabrics. I really like how this turned out.
Skort in standing position
Underneath the skirt: culottes
Cute tied waistband
This is the third time I have made this pattern. Once I made the long one with two buttons in front and the other time I ajusted it to be a elastic waistband for my swimsuit. I highly recommend this pattern, it is modest and functional, great for activities that involve a lot of movement. I just suggest you chose a light fabric for summer because the double layer can get warm. A thicker fabric will be nice and warm for winter activities. Of course wait to buy the pattern until it is on sale at Joann's or Hobby Lobby for $1 to $2. =)
