|~ Fall Skirt

I’m trying to come up with a fall wardrobe from my fabric stash and it’s proving to be harder than I thought- especially since I’ve nearly used up all my fabrics! This bottom layer is 1.5 yards of striped corduroy gathered onto a gored yoke. The upper skirt is another gored skirt from my favorite…

|~ For Sale

I made this skirt to sell. No time or a good name for an Etsy shop right now, so I’ll just hope this sells here! Classy. Fun. Versatile. This spring green satin skirt is perfect for summer and even Christmas. One layer of shiny satin over two layers of shimmery tulle. And two covered buttons…

|~ A Polka-Dot Skirt

Saturday evening I realized I hadn’t made a skirt this week, so I headed downstairs and came back with this.I LOVE it. Even though it’s officially Emma’s. 6-gores. 2 layers. Ribbon. Bows. Gathers.

|~ Gored Spring Skirt

Last week I made this skirt for spring. While at my friend’s house on Wednesday I was pleased to discover that my outfit matched her chair. 😀 Anyway, it’s a great skirt. I used the same pattern I used for this skirt, just cutting it off before the ruffles. It’s a bit shorter than I…

|~ Tiered Skirt For Elsie

Saturday night brought me searching for an outfit for Elsie to wear to church and then realizing she had outgrown all her dresses. I headed down to the basement and whipped up this cute skirt to match her shirt. She was soooooooooooo thrilled at the prospect of new clothes, and loves to twirl in it!…

|~ Linen Skirt

Back in January I bought some strange colored blue linen because it was cheap. My friend shopping with me at the time was very skeptical that I could make anything stylish out of it.I used McCall’s 5332, view C, omitting the lacy insert. It’s become one of my new favorite skirts, even though it wrinkles…
