A few weeks ago my friend Amy had this link to a 20 minute skirt on her blog.
I checked out the link and have been wanting to make a skirt. So, yesterday my friend Tammy and I got together to make some quick skirts. We did have a good time and it was pretty easy but not 20 minutes. I guess that is to be expected. It took me 45 minutes but that also includes interruptions from five kids(I watch two of my neighbor's kids three days a week).
This is Tammy modeling her new skirt. She also made one for her daughter and is going to make two more for her other girls. I think the little girl skirts are darling and a bit closer to 20 minutes to make.
It is an elastic waist which makes it easy but also made the skirt very full right at the hips, not a place where bulk needs to be added. So I went back and added darts inside to pull the fabric in. After tweaking it many times it turned out pretty good.
I added the ribbon on the bottom because I think it is cute and the skirt is a little on the short side for me when I just cut the 45' fabric in half.
I had extra fabric so I made a skirt for Madeline. I put her skirt on and five minutes later I thought, "I better get a picture before she gets too dirty." Woops, five minutes was just to long to stay clean. I guess the yogurt look is kind of cute.
