Do you remember my “make” list? It’s a listing of some things that I’d like to make this year. And I’ve actually done pretty well so far, making a few things already.
But one of the things on that list that has always intimidated me was clothing. I love the idea of making myself clothing, but I’ve been too scared to try.
But, this elastic waist flirty skirt from Growing Home has cured my fears of making clothing. I put together my very first skirt in the matter of an hour. And I think it’s actually wearable.
I had some cute dot fabric in my stash – Moda Bliss Dot in Scarlet – so I used that to make a knee-length skirt with a ruffled elastic waist.
I’m a big fan of the elastic waist. It’s comfortable, looks cute and was so simple to make. I had never made anything with elastic before and it was really quite simple.
And it has pockets, which makes me very happy.
