About how long do you think it would take a beginner to sew this skirt?

*I have a PHD in the painfully obvious.*

hm... i was just wondering, even though this is WAY late, why is it better to do a slit than a circle?
because it's quicker and you save material  Wink

I love the skirt; I can't wait to make one for my DD.

(BTW, that photo of lyler523's daughter on page 6 is about the CUTEST thing I've ever SEEN!)

It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye; then hey, free eyeball!

I second that. Your tutes are always incredible, and they help encourage everyone to feel like they can craft and sew everything: even really hard projects. Smiley

Thanks everybody!  I consider it kind of my mission to encourage young sewers and I am always trying to think of fun new designs.   This skirt is very easy and it's great if you have a serger but haven't really gotten it out of the box yet.  Errr... not that that ever happens or anything. 

Trust me on the slit - You have to be very precise when you cut out the circle for the waist in a circle skirt.  Most people cut it too big because they fail to consider the seam allowance.  Please trust me when  I say that a slit is better for a beginner.  I have taught circle skirts and these knit skirts for several years.  Look for my Rooty-tooty fresh and fruity skirt for another version.

I just wanted to thank you for this tutorial! I've had some jersey knit sheets forEVER, and I've been searching for something to do with them. Lately I've been converting my skirts to tops, and this was perfect! I now have a cute Easter outfit for tomorrow Smiley
Yay for fun!

I made that exact skirt.  Same fabric, same style.  Not kidding.

This tut was so easy! Finally I've made something I can wear in public!! I just used an old red jersey knit sheet I had and it's so comfy! Now I have a start maybe I can start finally making items I can wear. Great job and Thanks  Grin

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
