My InspirationI was at the post office the other day, and a lady walked in wearing a knit skirt similar to this. It looked so cute. I thought I can do that.
So on our "girls" weekend at the thrift stores, I added a knit skirt. Lucky for me, my sister found one and it was too big for her.
I went to the expert (mom), for some design help. I really didn't want to screw this up. So we talked about the curve and got out a roll of brown paper, here is what we came up with. I folded my skirt in half, front to back, and traced it on the paper. Then I cut out the paper and drew my curve.
Then I used chalk to trace my pattern on to the skirt, and I cut it out. I turned it under about 5/8 and hemmed. I researched some sites concerning hemming knit (I was nervous). The general consensus was polyester thread with a small zigzag.
It turned out cute. What do you think?
