Today joining us for is Deborah from Whipstitch, an extraordinarily talented seamstress who also runs and operates a fabric store in Atlanta! Thanks Deborah for joining us!
I am so glad to be part of Skirting the Issue! Foster children are a topic near to my heart, and in the city where I live, we see so many who are rescued from child trafficking and who are looking for homes. These children might have never had new clothing in their whole lives, much less something handmade just for them. So I’m delighted to contribute a tutorial to help us all use our needles to benefit those who often are overlooked!
This 20-minute skirt is great because it’s so adaptable to nearly any size–many organizations who benefit foster girls particularly need clothing for tween and teen girls, and this skirt can be adjusted in size all the way up, just for them. Simply change the length and you’re good to go!
I’ve also included instructions for using a serger to make this skirt–for a lot of us, when you first begin to use a serger, it’s not always clear when to use it and when not to, or even why you might want to use it in one spot and not in another! I’m hoping including serger instructions will help make it clear that even when you can use a serger on a particular sewing step, you might choose not to.
