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.
