Two in One

I found this fabric a while back at Quilter's Heaven in Northbrook and knew I wanted to make it into a skirt but didn't know how much fabric to buy.  Then I found a skirt pattern at YouCanMakeThis.com and purchased it.  I got the fabric, plus another print I liked last Tuesday.

{Sorry for the grainy, somewhat blurry and cutoff photo(s), I had Ella take them for me.  I was going to have Jason retake them this weekend but somehow that didn't happen}.

fabric - from the Clara line by P&B Textiles

This skirt was SO easy to make.  Just a lot of fabric, but simple assembly.20090717

fabric - Garden Party by Phillip Jacobs for Rowan

The only problem was the waist/high hip fit.  It was too big even though I'm sure I measured my high hip correctly.  I finally figured this is supposed to sit on your hip, not around your waist.  So I just ripped a bit of stitching out at the sides and moved the ties in to where the skirt would fit and top stitched it back up.

What do you think?  I can wear one side to a party on a Saturday and the other side to church on a Sunday!

It certainly feels very soft, light and comfy!
