The Starboard Skirt



I saw this post at U Create Crafts.
I knew that I must make one of these skirts, It looks adorable, don't you think?




And I knew that I had the perfect fabric.
(I got this queen size sheet from the thrift store for $3.99 last week)






I followed the instructions.

This skirt is very easy and fast to make!

I was able to whip up both of the skirts during the kids nap time.

One for Emily:


And one for me:





If you haven't made one, you should! The tutorial is very easy to follow, you will be surprised on how simple it is.


Thanks for visiting!

  18. What a great summer skirt! I'm always looking for ways to make simple skirts since that's about all I wear during summer. I also love that you made this out of a thrift store sheet! What resourcefulness!

    Love your creativity!

  19. Very cute skirt. The pic of you and the one of Emily reminds me of Snow White because of the colors. I imagine if she were real and lived in our time, this is what she would wear everyday. Super Cute!

  20. Hi! I love your sewing creations! I just found the same starboard skirt tutorial, and was thinking about making it, but I was a bit putoff by the elastic back. What do you think -- does the elastic factor class it down a bit? I'm looking for a "professional attire" type skirt... Also, did you have any trouble scaling-up the pattern for an adult size? Thanks!!
