I have to say that KCWC has really got me inspired to sew again - and trying out some new patterns too, as well as a couple of old favourites.
It has reminded me to get my Otto's out and have a flick through them when I want to make something as there are patterns for many, many garments in there.

This is the perfect example - a simple but sweet skirt that could be made in stretch or woven, in winter or summer weight fabric.
I've gone with a lightweight denim and pink trim. I chose to use one colour binding rather than the two shades of one colour shown in the magazine.
I also omitted the extra embellishments as I sometimes find too much like that limits how the item can be worn, so I kept it simple.

This was very easy to make - you start with six rectangles and just bind the edges of two of them then gather them onto the other, waistband, piece.
As Miss G would (and frequently does) say "Easy, Peasy, Lemon Squeezy".
I think there will be a bit of 'skirt as a gift' sewing coming up for Day Six.
