In the summer months I have certain things that I love to wear, but can’t always find ones that fit right. That’s when I ran into this easy tutorial and gave it a shot. Having never really sewn clothing before, I was a little awkward at it, but this was so simple that I was able to pull it off and I’m so proud of myself!
I have a couple of requirements for a perfect summer skirt: it has to be comfortable and it must be flattering! This particular skirt that I made fits great is is actually flattering. Many gathered skirts, if not made right, can make you look heavier than you are and we can’t have that happening!
In this tutorial, she shows you how to draft a simple elastic-waist skirt pattern that’s custom-made to fit your body, then you can use that pattern to make a cute, stylish skirt that sews together in a couple of hours or less. To be honest, I made two in a row last Saturday afternoon!
Wait. Does the world really need another elastic-waist skirt tutorial?
I guess you can be the judge of that. But, after spending the first few weeks of spring searching for a new go-to skirt pattern, I was left feeling a bit underwhelmed. There are a million quick-and-easy elastic waist skirts out there, but, really, most of them didn’t seem all that flattering, especially for actual grownups who might want to wear them in public.
