Hi everyone  Smiley

I made this skirt for a recent swap. I stitch by hand because it's relaxing and I feel more involved than when I use a machine. I had no plan while I was making it but I made a tutorial afterward in case anyone feels like making something along similar lines. The tutorial is more of a rough guide, no measurements, just laid out how I like to understand things. If you're less crazy than me and it isn't laid out how you understand things, please ask and I'll try to answer.

This is the skirt:



and this is the... um... "tutorial"  Roll Eyes



Enjoy and good luck  Wink

Oh, that's nice! Thanks for the tutorial. I saw this in the gallery and liked it but now I can see all the detail and the work that went into it! It's lovely!

My crappy eyes can't read the tutorial lol. So you cut a panel out of a broomstick skirt? I love the finished skirt!

I'm so glad, seriously it's not hard to do, I stitched it by hand and it only took a few hours in front of the t.v, give it a try someday!

So sorry you can't read it, you don't have crappy eyes, it's my writing and photography that's done it  Sad Yep, cut a panel from a broomstick skirt  Wink

I want to make myself one of these... and me being the girl who avoids skirts as much as possible! (They're just not functional...) I seriously may have to bend my rule a bit for this skirt...

I'm flattered you like it that much! I know what you mean, I used to be a non skirt wearer too, but I've discovered that between full length skirts and knee length skirts and the different cut options, I can do pretty much anything in them and now I feel restricted in trousers! If you want even more range of movement you could insert sections from a a heavily gathered or pleated skirt down the center front, or around the back and sides if you prefer.
