Here are two different takes on the same pattern. One is summery and in cotton,
the other turned out to be a little more dressy. I like them both and they have the added
bonus of having pockets, which I didn't realize at first. Smiley Super easy to sew, and I'm not super
experienced with clothing.

I do not have a lot of experience sewing clothes either. Both of your skirts turned out wonderful. Very pretty.

I love them!  What pattern did you use?  I am trying to start making clothing and not doing so well.  I need something easy.

The pattern is McCalls (on sale for .99, I refuse to pay the full price for those things) and it is 5591.
As long as you are careful it is totally doable. I think these are the first wearable things I have made, aside from my gaucho t shirt pants. Smiley Good luck and if you have any questions feel free to ask.

I did the blue one first as my "trial run" and it took about a day (not 24 hours, but a day on and off because of the baby). I did the next one as soon as I finished the first and it came together a little easier because the material is cotton and was easier to work with. I also hand stitched the hem and yoke so it took a little extra time.
