Skirt Fever

I made my first skirt a few weekends ago using the Starboard skirt pattern over at UCreate. I must say that my skirt making wasn't without a few little flaws, but for someone just starting out with garment making, working with a skirt pattern is a perfect introduction. It allows you to learn some basic techniques and become familiar with how to work with different fabrics.

Now I have skirt fever! Lucky for me there are so many interesting and Free skirt patterns out there. But I have to say that UCreate has some of the best posts when it comes to skirt making.  Check out my visual list of what I'd like to work on next.

Pinwheel skirt

I already have this skirt all planned out.
I'm thinking a dark navy blue fabric with this adorable
folk art heart ribbon as the trim. So cute!

Ruffle Skirt
Perfect skirt project for scrap fabric.
Imagine all the wonderful color schemes you can make with this design.
You can go neutral or take it to the next level and play with contrasting tones.

Scalloped Tulle Skirt

So this tulle is actually scalloped fabric that you can buy,
but the link will show you how to make your own. 


  1. the first and last skirt I really adore

  2. Aren't they great?!? I really want to try and make that scalloped fabric.
