Flirting the Issue Skirt

15 Jul

Anna Maria Horner’s Flirting the Issue Skirt was a super easy and fast project to undertake. I was able to finish this skirt in one night.

For the main part of the skirt, I used a yard of cotton voile from AMH’s Innocent Crush.  For the lining, I used a solid pink voile. I mistakenly cut the length of the lining too long, but instead of cutting it down, I decided to have the lining extend an inch below the skirt.  I like the little bit of pink peaking out.

The high waist is my favorite part of the skirt.  I like the faux-smocking the four rows of elastic give the waistband of the skirt.

This is a great pattern for a beginning sewer or if you are looking to make a quick addition to your summer wardrobe.

    This is so pretty! That is the perfect fabric- so summery and light.

    I was just thinking of making a skirt like this and for some reason didn’t know about AMH’s pattern. I was just thinking of those mock smock sundresses that I have made for the little girls in my life, thinking how easy it would be to adapt that technique to a skirt. What do you think? Is this improvisable? Is it cut straight or at all A-line?

    Thanks for making and sharing this – I have been so curious, but hadn’t really seen any that made me want to make it. But, after seeing yours, I ran upstairs and immediately started cutting and sewing. And – I love it. Now, if only our weather would brighten up so that I can wear it.
