a little homemade skirt

I tried this simple, modest skirt tutorial last night for Timber. It went together really, really fast and would be a perfect skirt to sew for your daughter if you're new to sewing. Plus, it's adorable! The only way I may modify it a little would be to taper the top while I'm cutting my fabric so that there isn't as much gather at the waistline when complete.
Here are the photos that I took this gloomy, rainy morning.




I only had 1 yd of fabric (or maybe a little less) to make this so my back ties didn't come out to be as long as in the tutorial- or even as long as I'd like. But they'll do.


I would certainly make this skirt again. It's a winner!

Darling skirt and she looks so pleased with it. My challenge when the girls were younger was to see if I could finish an item before they grew out of it!

Very cute and simple looking. Maybe even a novice sewer like myself could pull it off.

I am new to sewing so I appreciate the simplicity of this and I will certainly be checking this link out. Plus, I have several yards of fabric lying around and I can't wait to have something neat to make out of free fabric!!!

The model is cuter than the skirt! I loved to sew for my daughter when she was young and she loved to wear dresses and skirts. I miss that. But now fill the void with knitting for the grandbebes. Great job- and April right on perfect 4-H beginning sewing project!
