To Do: Flirty Skirt

LOVE!  This is a variation on the 20-minute skirt that I want to try - the triple elastic looks neat!

To Do: Vintage Inspired Skirt with Pockets

I totally want to make this skirt!  Pockets!

To Make: Bias Skirt

I want to make this bias skirt!

For Me: Jean Upcycling

Upcycling is all the rage, and I had a couple pairs of jeans in my closet that I don't wear any more.  This particular pair had a giant hole in the butt. 

Skirt it!

I could be happier with this one... I worry that, in the words of Heidi Klum, it looks like I'm pooping fabric.. and the front is a bit weird also.  But, it was fun to make and it's comfortable.  I will try again with some jeans that have a little less stretch in them.  It would be nice to have some more structure in the waist.

But overall?  Pretty happy for a first try!

For Me: Another "20-Minute Skirt"/variation

I used this beautiful fabric to make another "20 minute skirt" in the same was that I made the gathered skirts for The Girl.

I put a little patch pocket on (for the cell phone) and it worked great!

I used one long piece of fabric, but I think the shape would be better if I had cut in in half and made two side-seams.  But overall?  Really pleased.

For Me: Another Breezy Wrap Skirt

I made another "Breezy wrap skirt" - this one with a larger overlap than the other one, because it was so ... risky before.  This one is much better.
I love this fabric.

This one, I might even put the wrap in back, and then have a back pocket...
