KCWC Day 2 & 3

I made these three skirts last night after the girls went to bed.  I saw this skirt on Healther Bailey's blog.  The two layers and bias tape at the hem added a little something to what is essentially a very basic design of rectangles.  
But the very best thing about these skirts is the colored elastic waistband.  I found them at JoAnn's and was so excited.  All I did was serged the two layers of the skirt to the elastic, and like magic I had eliminated at least 3 steps of the usual sewing process.

It's hard to tell from the pictures but the blue elastic has tiny white dots.  And today, while B was napping and S was resting, I made two more!


  1. those are great! such a clever design with the elastic waistband. i need a serger...

  2. i got mine around this time last year, early christmas present. it's changed my life:)...

  3. so jealous of that sherbet pips! very cute skirts.


thanks for commenting! you've made my day!
