I love skirts. But that's not new news. (I think I need to count the skirts in my closet again. It's been awhile. Thanks for the reminder, Jessi.)
I have been thinking a lot about knit skirts lately. I see them often on other people, but with my long legs, it's always difficult finding anything to fit the lower half of my body that is long enough. That goes for pants and skirts. No one really wants to see any one's butt hanging out of a skirt. I just wish more people realized that.
I ran into the fabric store to buy a zipper for a dress I want to sew and came out with some knit fabric. It was seriously on sale. Like $3.49-3.99 a yard. I thought it was the perfect price to experiment.
I used my serger, ballpoint needles and not really any pattern. It's a basic A-line skirt with a waistband.
(No, I'm not pregnant. I am trying to awkwardly take the photo myself.)
And, had my serger not been acting up again, it would have taken only minutes for each one. But if you have to thread and re-thread your serger 95 times in a row, it might take a tad longer.
I thought about doing a rolled hem for the bottom, but ultimately decided to leave it untouched. I was afraid of stretching the hem in a lettuce-edge fashion and, while I love that look, it wasn't the look I wanted for the skirts.
I may never take them off.
