I fell in love with these Aviary 2 fabrics at Crafty Laine and knew just what to do with them: make my favorite skirt to match my favorite cardi. It’s 6 panels based off the Yard Sale Wrap Skirt from Weekend Sewing (the panels have been altered slightly–I took off about 6 inches off the bottom and then widened the angle so that I still end up with the same sweep measurement) with a side zip and a straight waistband. It’s the perfect twirly girly skirt pattern. I slightly prefer the wrap version, but since you can get by with 2 yards of fabric for this one you can make it for under $20. I love the contrasting waistband on this version of my favorite skirt, and will have to do it again! It’s like a built in belt!
I finished it in time to wear to Art Hop at Crafty Laine where our FRMQG was featured last week, but since it was snowing I had to wear it with a pair of tights. The skirt clings terribly to tights, but it was that or hypothermia in May!
