Back to school skirt

Blue Skirt #2

Ja, ja, I know - school isn't back for a few more weeks yet but it appears that Santa DID leave some sewing mojo in my stocking, so a quick skirt for Tyger was in order!

You seriously cannot get more basic than this - I took an 80cm by 115cm length of fabric, sewed the short sides together, hemmed the bottom, did a 3cm hem on the top and inserted some 2.5cm elastic and hey presto - a skirt was made!

The verdict? She's chuffed because she picked the fabric and that it goes so well with her favourite t-shirt, and I'm chuffed because it took all of 20 minutes to make! Happy new year!

Blue Skirt #1


  1. Cute skirt. I love that the quick projects are sometimes the best!

  2. Is Tyger lucky enough to go to a school with no uniform? I had to move states for that!

  3. A win for you and a win for your daughter.

  4. I LOVE this skirt! Looks fab on you and what a cool bright colour.
