I have been thinking for a while now that it was time to update The Vintagely Modern Skirt for summer. And because I am obsessed with making them in stripes (I did a black and white one for winter) I chose hot pink and white for summer.
HERE is the original tutorial. But, just so you know, I did do two things differently. First, I put in an invisible zipper on the side seam because I wanted it to be more of a fancy skirt. You can see the zipper peeking out by her hand on her hip in the bottom picture.
And secondly, after washing and drying the original skirt a couple of times, I knew it needed some interfacing in the waistband to give the cotton more strength. I used fusible interfacing in heavy weight, but you can use whatever you have.
And in case you are wondering, yes, I did hand piece the stripes. I wish I could find fabric like this. Aaahh....maybe someday?! The stripes are 4 inches finished (cut 4 1/2 with quarter inch seams)and the waistband was cut 9 inches then folded in half with a .5 inch seam to join the waistband to the skirt (to make it equal to the stripes).
