I've been working on this skirt for a couple days. Let me say that while a few people have been in awe of my quilts, no one is ever in awe of my other sewing abilities (or lack there of.) I've made quite a few aprons in my day but have never ventured into making clothes. It was always too intimidating. I just knew anything I made would probably turn out awful. So for this skirt I bought my fabric at Wal-Mart. I usually never even look at the Wal-Mart fabric because it's not the highest quality stuff. I wasn't about to spend $8/yd though on something that may turn out yucky. Now I wish I'd spent the money because it turned out great!I would have to say that the result is probably only because of how simple this pattern was! A fellow farmgirl from the MJF Chat Room shared it with me and I'm thankful she did! Here's the link if you want to try it yourself- even someone with minimal sewing abilities would be able to do this one!
