With some inspiration from my sweet sister-in-law, I made a stretchy skirt just in time for spring.
I used this tutorial from Freshly Picked. She has hoards of great tutorials (mostly sewing, but some others). In addition to her fresh take on projects, I am also a huge fan of her tag line: "So hip it hurts." Love it.
Here's my attempt at "hip":
This was my first time sewing with elastic, and let me tell you, this project hides a multitude of errors! But with mistakes come lessons learned. Also, wonky pockets.
The wide elastic was about $3.50 or so for a yard; (super-sweet-sale) fabric was just $1.50 for two half yard pieces at Urban Arts and Crafts. Hooray for being thrifty.
