Another day, another knit skirt

I’ve seen so many cute long knit skirts lately worn by people at work.  So I thought, why not make my own!  I had just bought myself a serger – exciting news.  So this was the perfect project to test out my skills.

Not much to say about this one.  I had used this pattern before, but this time I decided to try view C, but with the yoke I had constructed for view D.  It’s pretty basic, with just a back panel and a front panel, and the yoke pieces to form a waistband.


I did start to sew up the waist incorrectly, sewing where the elastic is supposed to fit in the wrong place.  I flipped the waist pieces around it and finished the waistband that way.  It isn’t quite the way it’s supposed to be, but luckily it works with such a simple skirt.


The knit fabric flows so nicely and the skirt is incredibly flattering.  It’s also very comfortable and the best part – it’s in style right now (if you go by my co-worker’s purchases)!  If you are looking for a quick day project that is practical, this is a great one.

I'm not sure why I have to describe myself so much.
