Sewing: The Blueberry Lemonade Skirt

Hello all! As most of you know I am in the midst of moving. However, that has not kept me from sewing! I whipped up this circle skirt last night and thankfully my husband was able to take some photos for me this evening :) I have had this fabric sitting in my stash for quite a while.. I picked it up from Denver Fabrics  (Love that site!) and never knew exactly knew what I wanted to create out of it. Suddenly, the answer came to me. A circle skirt! Circle skirts are a year round staple in my wardrobe so it was the perfect solution.

You may have noticed, I am sporting a new hair color....The other night Ethan and I were talking about how when he first met me I was a red head. I had the bright idea that I should dye my hair again! (it was 1:00 A.M.) I had just finished growing my hair out to its natural color.. Also, after my many hair dying fiascos I had decided to never it again. Ha...Ha...Ha... did I mention it was 1:00? We went to the grocery store and bought the hair dye. When we arrived home, I enlisted Ethan to help me color my hair. Needless to say his talents are not in this field ;) My oldest sister Casey who had done all of my hair coloring in the past came to the rescue and gave me the shade you see today! I am fairly pleased with it! However, I would just like to say to all of the gals out there thinking of dying you hair to a completely different color than it is. Don't do it! Coloring you hair is like opening Pandora's Box and if it turns out badly? Imagine getting a bad tattoo that you are stuck with for a year.

 Construction Notes:
 Fabric- Chambray from Denver Fabrics
 Zipper- Vintage metal zipper (my favorite type to work with!)
There isn't much to say about the construction of a circle skirt. Very simple and straight forward! I drafted my pattern using the tutorial from Casey's blog.
Circle skirts are so easy to sew, I would like to try something a bit different next time and experiment with a shaped waist band.

And there you have it!

Have you ever created a shaped waist band for a skirt?
Have a lovely evening!


  1. What a lovely skirt! It's so fun to see what someone else made from this fabric :)
