star twirl skirt

8.28.2012


Stars are in.  It's true.  Well, at least at our house.  I could not stop myself from getting this star knit fabric from fabric.com.  I had pinned this skirt from J. Crew.  Of course by the time I thought it might be on clearance or something it was all sold out.  Sad face.


So I was going to make a Figgy's circle skirt with it, but the order got messed up and I only got sent a half yard.  We made it work by just doing a two tier gathered skirt with a knit waistband.  So the waistband is a little loose, I forgot that particular fabric stretched and kept on stretching, not great for a waistband.


It's still cute.

  5. Well done! You could insert a tie in the waistband if it gets too stretchy; I did that once, just used a piece of ribbon that matched & buttonholed the openings.

  10. This looks really comfortable and fun to wear! I was also thinking, hm, a little elastic in the waistband would fix the looseness ... if it's an issue. If it's not, awesome! I love it.
