SoNP Skirt #1

Skirt #1 for the "Summer of No Pants" challenge (a skirt a week for 4 weeks). Given the current fabric embargo in force here, I'll be making all my 4 from stash.

This is last week's skirt, and I did get it done on time (finished Sat. am), really. It's the pics part that slows me down. Even with a flash it was tough to get these to come out. I need to find a better photo location somewhere around here, but that's a task for another day.

As you can see, this is another pieced, slapdash, summer skirt made up of various quilting cottons; TNT self-drafted pattern; comfy drawstring waist. Here's the back:

Skirt #2 is on track for completion by the end of the week, but no promises about when I'll have a photo of it!


  1. LOVE it! I often think of making some of these skirts since the idea was planted earlier this year by you! I love to wear skirts in the summer. I think it would be fabulous to have about 25 different ones to choose from, and to completely remove shorts from my wardrobe! Do you think that's an age related thing? ;)

  2. I've never liked shorts, been a skirts girl my whole life. I even wear these skirts for gardening, casual hikes, etc. I don't have 25 yet, but I can't seem to stop making them so that day may come. I wear mine a lot, toss 'em in the washer and dryer (cooler temps), which eventually wears them out. But that's just another reason to make more.
