This spring’s skirt trend is one of my favorites. Why?
- Skirts are pretty easy to make so whether you are beginner or advanced, this is a garment that will work in your sewing room.
- Skirts can be created from a wide variety of fabrics: knit/woven, print/solid, textured/smooth
- Most importantly, this year’s skirt trend is all about the skirt! It’s not about what silhouette has risen to the top of the charts or which length is in, it’s about wearing skirts! Your choice of style and length, whatever flatters you!! I love it.
Jenny has just started a Skirt Sew Along in our Savvy Sewer Salon. She’ll be making 5 skirts in a variety of styles and fabrics. Join in as she fills her closet with new outfits. Here’s a peek at her first one.
Join our Sew Along…all that’s needed is fabric from SBDF and a willingness to share your process. Lurkers are welcome too.
In the spirit of the trend I’ve been collecting inspiration on a Pinterest style board. I’ll add more as I find them…not too hard to do this spring!
If you are shopping for skirt fabric, our offerings range from 4-way stretch cotton for sturdy fly-front or button-front casual skirts…khaki, dark brown and black
to floaty cotton voile for soft feminine full skirts.
Pencil skirts work well in cotton satin and spring/summer is the perfect season to choose a happy color.
or choose a bold print. If its too much for a top, a short pencil skirt may be just the right way to wear the fabric.
We think some of our fine cotton paisley prints would work for a retro Maxi skirt.
