Sewing: Skort

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
Zipper opening

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. =)

Thank you for commenting!!! I knew you had been reading, according to my clustrmap there is a large dot over Texas.;) Comments are what make blogging worth while.


PS are you still not coming to camp?={


That's a neat pattern. It's been awhile since I last sewed any clothing. I'll have to look up that pattern next time we're at the store.
