Stretchy waistbands have become a necessity!! At 21 weeks preggers, I can no longer button anything… ha ;)
ALSO… I’M IN ARIZONA!! Yup, it is my turn to visit my sis!! …so hot weather (it’s in the upper 80s/low 90s here) plus needing some stretchy bottoms that weren’t jeans meant that my first solo project on my sewing machine was going to be a skirt!!
The photos above were taken on Easter in my front yard where we got a nice little glimpse of spring. Nevermind the goofy faces… I’m great behind the camera but sometimes feel a little silly on the other side.
I used this Maxi Skirt Tutorial that I purchased off Etsy after reading some great reviews of beginner sewers! And of course… because I was a beginner sewer it took me about 4 hours… most of which was actually spent trying to figure out how to cut it out because I was a tad bit short on fabric. Thankfully, I managed, and this reversible knit got turned into a skirt! I loved using the other side of the fabric for the waistband… a nice contrast don’t ya think? I think next time it would probably only take me an hour or so to make one, so when I’m back from AZ I may just do that!
See… that stretchy waistband certainly comes in handy!! See you next week… with a tan ;)
