Sew What's Up #2

Welcome to Funky Cards
Sew What's up with Madison #2

As most of you know, I LOVE to sew.  When I design or create a project that I think you might enjoy I will share it with you here on my blog.  Maybe it will inspire you to dust off your sewing machine!

-Fun and Funky Ruffle Knit Skirt-

This project started with this fabulous ruffle knit material I bought this summer while we were on our trip to Georgia.

For this project, I decided to use the coral material!  I pictured a cute skirt I could pair with a variety of different things I already own.

Other than thread, all I needed was black elastic to finish off the top waist band.

To create this skirt:
  1. Start by cutting the material and sewing a seem to create a tube approximately 10" bigger than your waist and longer than the desired length.  
  2. Cut a piece of 1.5" wide elastic band that measures around your waist.
  3. Sew the material to the elastic band carefully gathering the  material as you sew.
  4. Cut the skirt to the desired length.  Note that this is a ruffled knit and you can cut under the last ruffle and there won't be a raw edge to sew.

I used a zig zag stitch to sew the elastic band to the tube.

All done.  What do you think?

Look for future Sew What's Up With Madison blog posts.  I still have more ruffle knit material!!
