I made a skirt!

I know! I know! I still don't have the link for this tutorial... but I MADE A SKIRT! The waistband is knit. It's a yoga-style and folds down. The skirt itself is a woven cotton fabric. I need to do some cleanup on it. The stitch I used to make the ruffle can be seen in some places. I also have not hemmed the bottom yet. But it was a very exciting way to kill time before the Mavericks game last night! Thank you so much Ashley of Make It and Love It for the great tutorials!

On a side note... I think all major sporting events should be done on central time. I couldn't stay up for the whole game last night because it started at 9:30pm, and I'm in Texas. I can't even imagine if I was on the East coast. 11:30pm start?! If we move all start times to a reasonable hour in central time, nobody will have games "too early" or "too late." It would also be convenient for me - which is probably the most important reason.

***I'll be linking up to a few parties and will list them below!***


  1. looks great!! I really want to learn how to sew...a skirt would be a good first start I think!!
