Skirt Week Entry


I didn't think I'd be entering Skirt Week this year since I SOOOO didn't need another skirt. But this one was on my "MUST make" list!

This skirt was the first tutorial I bookmarked when I learned how to use Google Reader. It's an Anthropologie knock off that originally cost $160!!

My version is a black/gray chambray fabric that cost me about $10! I still need to add decorative buttons, but I'll get around to that later.

The flounce turned out to be really easy and makes a big impression! I think I say this about every new thing I make, but I think this is now my favorite thing I've sewed! I even got the ultimate compliment - Haven asked me to make one for her!!

Want to make your own? Check out this tutorial. It's great!


  1. Kelly I LOVE it! That looks soooo good and I would absolutely believe it came from Anthro!!! Well done, i hope you win skirt week (is it a contest like spring top week is?)


  2. This looks fantastic! I LOVE the flounce! Also, I miss you guys. How are things?

  3. So cute! I looks great on you!

  4. Nice job! Knocking off Anthro always makes for such fun projects. The ruffle is great!

  5. Thanks for letting me know you made this, Kelly! It looks really great! I'm glad the tutorial was useful. :)
