I love to sew simple summer skirts. They are so easy to sew that you don’t even need a sewing pattern! Just take a few measurements and you’re ready to go. This skirt was sewn using some adorable seersucker fabric making it cool and easy to wear during the summer months. To get the full “how to” just keep reading! If you like this project then you may love this “Tween Skirt Sewing Tutorial”.
Today I’m very excited to participate in a very special blog series. The girls over at Simple Simon & Co have come up with a sewing charity project that is very close to their hearts. Liz and Elizabeth have had first hand experience working with girls in the foster care system and know some of the challenges that face these girls. Wanting to do something for them they devised the “Skirting the Issue” project. The idea behind the project is to make handmade skirts for girls in the foster care system. Since many of the girls are frequently in between homes they don’t have the opportunity to receive a handmade gift from a caregiver often. This project hopes to show love for them through donations of clothing.
If you want to participate you can check out all of the guidelines over at Simple Simon, I challenge you to make a skirt (or two) of your own and donate it to girls in the foster care system. If you don’t know how to go about doing this, talk to Liz or Elizabeth they can help get the skirts to the girls that need them.
So with that in mind, I’d like to share a tutorial for a very simple summer skirt! The pattern is very simple with the addition of some decorative trim to make the skirt a bit more special. The combo elastic/drawstring waist will help this skirt adjust to fit a variety of sizes. You can whip up a few easily in an afternoon.
