Completed: Skirt

Well, the two summer skirts from my to-do list became one summer skirt, with an option to complete another if I have time early this next week.

Blue Summer Skirt

I really like this skirt. I’s fuller than most of the A-line skirts I make, fun and lightweight. I used a skirt I already own as a template. The template skirt is made from a heavier material, which I guess pulls the side seams down enough that the extra allowance made for the hips is not noticeable. But on this lightweight fabric – super noticeable. So I went down and removed the extra hip fullness as soon as I took this photo!

Skirt Hem

I got the idea for the hem detail from a skirt I already own – one that was purchased from one of the expensive mall stores (on clearance for 1.50!). My skirt is not an exact copy, but it’s definitely similar!
