It's getting hot up here in the Pacific Northwest! I wanted a new summer skirt and was looking for a way to use up some of this gorgeous fabric I found at Ikea. It’s called Cecelia and it was only a little over $4 a yard. I just couldn’t pass it up. Inspired by this tutorial over at Altered Cloth, I whipped up my own version of their Gathered Skirt with Knit Waistband. This skirt is super easy to make--I did it during my little one’s afternoon nap. That’s how fast it came together. Love it—instant gratification and I can wear the skirt tonight if I want. I lined the skirt with just plain white cotton fabric too. I actually went back and shortened my waistband a little, but it will just depend on your personal preference. It's really comfortable and would even work as a maternity skirt, I bet. We definitely recommend this tutorial!
