Hey y’all! Today I’m a part of Sew Country Chick’s Sewing The Trends Summer 2013 Series!
Chambray is having a moment right now, and I have to admit I was slow to embrace it. I have been embracing the maxi skirt trend, however, for a couple of years now. I live in the South, so it’s HOT right now, and I love easy, breezy maxi skirts all Summer long.
After making the chambray version I realized that styling is very important, because it can easily go sister wivesish. My favorite way to wear it is paired with a bright belt and a bright contrasting top. You could also do a funky boho style. So many possibilities!
Want to make one? Here’s a mini-tute:
*edited to add: RST means “right sides together”
Gather the 2nd tier at the top until it meets up with the bottom of the first tier. Sew RST.
Repeat for 3rd tier.
Fold top over 1″ and sew, insert 3/4″ elastic.
Now put on your easy, breezy skirt and smile because you can take a day off shaving your legs ;-).
