The Everyday Summer Skirt

For years, I have had a skirt I bought on the street in Cold Spring that I love because it is easy (read: pull on and walk), comfy (read: elastic waist), yet stylish (read: undeserved props from mom friends).  

I am not a super-confident garment sewer, but after the busyness and chaos of the last few weeks of school, I really needed to do something for ME.  So yesterday I decided to buckle down and try to recreate this fave skirt.

I learned a couple of tricks on the first attempt, but I am really happy with how it turned out overall---so happy, in fact, that I just ordered a whole bunch of fabric to make a pile of these and stock up my Etsy shop, so keep your eyes peeled for that link!


  1. Super cute! Wear it a little higher and you could even pass for a young hipster ;)
