There are only two more Sew For Me posts! I have LOVED this series and working with the wonderful girls over at KOJO Designs!
Today I am going to revisit one of my most popular tutorials. The Taking Notes Skirt.
For some reason when I switched over to the new blog it didn’t bring ALL of the posts (grrrrrrrr). But this was a good excuse to repost it with some upgrades if you will. So here we go with Taking Notes Skirt 2
I hope I answer some of the many email questions I have recieved about this skirt I promise it is super easy! I absolutely love rugby stripe fabric but have an incredibly hard time finding it in cute colors. I finally decided just to make my own. The fabric pictured above is just wide strips of quilters cotton Orange and Ice Blue Sewn together. I wish I had made the ties as wide as the original. I think with a waist this significant you need nice chunky ties, no?
What you will need:
1.5 yards of fabric (unless you want a rugby strip like mine then you need 3/4 of each to create the main, wasitband and ties)
1/2 yard light interfacing
a small amount of thin elastic
