Tutorial Tuesday :: Flirty Fall Skirt from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom

One of my favorite looks for Fall include a fun skirt paired with a jean jacket and booties, so I was thrilled to find this Flirty Fall Skirt Tutorial from Jamie of Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom that is the EXACT style I want to replicate. This super simple tutorial includes thorough instructions for every step of the way, from creating the perfect pattern based on your own body measurements to those last finishing touches. Click here for the entire tutorial and happy sewing!

When attaching the elastic, remember to stretch the elastic while you sew without stretching your fabric. Jaime's instructions include a great trick for keeping the elastic and the fabric evenly distributed as you sew, by marking each in even increments and pinning at each marker.

Jamie used Cotton Jersey for her skirt, but most knit fabrics would be great for this tutorial based on the look and feel that you want. Some additional fabrics to try include Cotton Lycra, French Terry, Single Spandex, and Brushed Poly Spandex. A few of my picks from the store:
