A combination of things inspired me to pursue making a few skirts for myself. I was drawn to the idea after making cute little skirts for my girls! I was challenged by Joy's posting each day when she'd worn a skirt - and the femininity and beauty behind that. And, I was tired of being hot in jeans. It is HOT here!
So, I started looking for a pattern - I came across a review for Amy Butler's A-line skirt pattern and did some more checking into that. I finally decided to make these skirts for myself and found a copy of the pattern on ebay for a few dollars less than anywhere else that also included free shipping.
Then, I remembered Megan's tip to order fabric here - with free shipping also! I used this, this and this fabric.
I bought the muslin for the lining and the zippers at Wal-Mart and used thread I already had on hand.
I've worn these all over the country as we just got home from our road trip! And, I will say that I have found myself not wanting to put pants on again! I love these skirts! They fit my lifestyle and personality and I have felt more feminine in the process too!
All three of these were made in one weekend! And, now I want to make a couple more! Have you ever made your own clothes? What did you make and how did you like it?
