Today I get to share a skirt that I made for the JoAnn #SewYourStyle National Sewing Month Challenge.
For this challenge I got to make a non-quilted item using quilting cottons and Pellon….um….awesome! I love quilting cottons and Pellon and I wanted a new skirt for fall! It was a perfect match.
So I was telling Elizabeth about this on the phone and she just happened to be at JoAnn…and saw this blue floral print which was exactly like the kind of fabric I was describing…..so she grabbed a yard and a half for me (along with some Pellon) and BAM! Destiny.
Its a simple pleated skirt with a 4 inch waistband (stabilized by some lightweight Pellon) that hits just below the knee and will be great to wear with sweaters and boots.
(And if you want to make one just like it come back here Thursday for the full step by step tutorial! I promise it’s super easy….you don’t even need a pattern!)
I love projects like this! So much fun to make and have to wear when you are finished! If you want to join in on the #SewYourStyle challenge hop on over here to get all the details and to enter!
It’s such a fun contest and the winner will get $1,000!
And while we are on the subject of JoAnn….
