I got this material from a recycle/reuse place in Berkeley.  I loved the bright colors and had to make skirts.  They are simple A-line skirts, really easy to make.  The first one has a zipper, the second one is just a pull over.  Enjoy!

Loved both of them! You said the second was a pullover -- is the fabric stretchy? If not, how do you get it to stay up?

The fabric is not stretchy.  It just rests on my hips.  I know, probably not the best way seeing that I may lose/gain weight at some point.  But it works for now.   

Thanks for all the compliments.

The store is called The East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse at 6713 San Pablo near Ashby.  They usually have all sorts of fabric.  You WILL have to dig. 

Have fun!

Both of them are great! Grin I love the fabric of the second one- its kind of 70's. Great job! I wish I could find fabric as cool as that around here...

yay!!! I love East Bay Depot!!! I always get cheap old fabric there to use for pre-making difficult patterns to see if there are any issues before using nice fabric. I've never found fabric as cool as yours though (you must get there first!  Wink) Cute skirts!! Three cheers for bay area crafters!

PS once at East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse, I got this really cool felt that used to cover a black jack table and had all that blackjacky (new word!!) screenprint on it. It's really cool but I haven't thought of any craftastic use for it yet.

Ok, I've been wanting to make skirts, but I'm scared. You make it look sew so easy. I absolutely hate following patterns or reading maps. Is it really as easy as you make it look? I've had great success with the tutorials on here, and can do zippers, etc. But dang you make it look easy. How do I make it fit? Is the top part the width of your waist + 1 inch? I'm assuming the extra inch is for the seams, right? Did you go off of a pattern, or create your own in the first place?
Thanks a bunch for the help.
