Three Days and Five Skirts

I found a cute and easy skirt pattern on Pinterest. It was called the 20-minute skirt. I thought it would be fun to make skirts for the girls after Christmas.

It turns out that it takes me an hour to make a 20 minute skirt. If you're interested, here is the link:

One problem is that none of the fabrics we chose could be sewn in a tube, as they all had a pattern that had to go up and down, necessitating two side seams. Then, you have to measure over and over....

But, I sewed five skirts in the past three days, one for me and each of the girls and two for Amanda, (because she asked). It was a fun project, and I think they turned out just great. Just do not look closely at the sewing line on the waist band! That's why I'm wearing my shirt tucked out!

  1. I have been thinking about a duplicating CCA painting. I have one artist dummy that I could dress up using your pattern. What do ya think?
