I made another Simplicity 1616 skirt for myself, this time with a beautiful Rayon Challis. This type of fabric just feels girly to me...the kind that sways beautifully when you walk. One of my girls pulled out a knit that I had stashed away since last summer. She asked if I could make her a skirt to match mine since they were a very similar print. I was able to make two out of a single yard!
Just a simple yoga band at the top. I took each of their waist measurements and cut 2 fabric rectangles for the skirt part. I measured from their hipbone to where I wanted the length to be and added 1" for seam allowances. I stitched up the side seams and ran gathering stitches from seam to seam, matching them to the width of the waistband. I had both skirts made within an hour. They love them!
Plenty of colorful flowers to match a t-shirt to.
