Anchored Down









I made myself a skirt yesterday. And wore it immediately after I snipped the last thread. No pattern. No plan. No idea if it would work. It was a bit big my first go-round but I took in the elastic and it was good to go. Took less than two hours, and would be a lot less than that if I didn't add the anchor or do french seams. But how could I not, being Memorial Day and all. Next time, oh and there so will definitely be a next time, I might use some thicker elastic to make the waist a bit less bulky. And because every single item used to make this has been in my possession for more than a year, I consider this to be a free project. Y'all know that "free" is my favorite word!

Adorable!!!!
Are you going to be selling mommy sized skirts in your store?
I am sure you know this but when I make jammie pants I always stitch up all 4 sides of the waistband to 'seal' the elastic so it doesnt twist :O)
