Flat Front Skirt Tutorial -Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom
I had this twill like fabric and thought making the entire waist gathered with elastic would be too bulky. With a quick search I found this great tutorial. It still uses elastic on the back, so the fitting is forgiving and it is great for donating. I made the largest size I could make with the fabric I had, and ended up making two size 8 skirts. One of the skirt has narrower band because of my cutting mistake, but the lost length was added to the main skirt.
All those skirts were quick sew, but it took me forever to get started. I had some projects I wanted to finish first, and I was not managing my time well. And as I mentioned before, I started the sewing room makeover and all my supplies are stacked up in the corner of our dining room...actually they are taking up more than just a corner ;o I pulled out some fabric to work on the projects I have in mind, but it is hard to go through the stash fabrics right now. Those fabrics I used for the skirts were on top of the stash pile, already been pre-washed, because I wanted to use them for something...well they became the skirts for Skirting the Issue 2015 ;) I have not decided where to send them yet, but I will be picking one from their donation center list.
I only sewed 3 skirts this year. But hopefully next year I will be in a better place, time and room wise, to sew more!
Linking up to those fun parties.
