The Afton Skirt September 1, 2011 – Posted in: Sewing, Tutorials
I very rarely enjoy making clothes for other adults. Women come in every shape and size and I’m no tailor! So it’s really hard to make things for other people that fit them correctly. But recently an old and very dear friend of mine asked me if I could make a skirt she’d seen.
So she came over one afternoon, we poured over the picture and came up with a game plan. Then we packed up the girls and headed out to get our materials. She stayed with me while I took some measurements, drafted the pattern, and got all the pieces cut out. It only took me a few hours that night to sew most of it together. She came back the next day and I did some finishing details and we had a little final photoshoot. I’m absolutely in LOVE with the way it came out, and I’m excited that in my non-pregnant state we wear the same size so I don’t even have to make new pattern pieces to make myself this amazing skirt!
