Flirting the Issue

I was looking through my stash of fabrics and came upon this black and white fabric that I got well...lets say awhile back.  It is a light cotton.  I was originally going to use it for a shirt, but it is such a busy print that I thought it might be too much.  When I pulled it out this time, I thought about Anna Maria Horner's new free skirt pattern called Flirting the Issue.  

This is a super easy pattern that just requires you to cut two rectangles from your fabric and lining.  The cutting and sewing came together within an hour.  Threading those four pieces of elastic, however, took me another hour and a half!  I finally had to turn on a movie to entertain myself. ;0)

In other news, have you heard that Mug Rug Madness is starting tomorrow?  Erin of Two More Seconds is putting it all together, and I am lucky enough to be a part of it.  Come back on Wednesday to check out the tutorial!


  1. That is really cute. I am always tempted to make myself a skirt, but never do. I'm always worried it will look horrible on me. Maybe I'll give this one a try.

  2. The skirt is very cute and looks great!

  3. how cute! i downloaded that pattern but have yet to make it. I have this nice goal to make myself some cute skirts for the summer... but I'm so intimidated!! I've never made one before!

  4. I seriously need some more skirts -- if they are as easy to make as you say I might have to give one a try!! ;]


I love to hear from you! I try to reply to most comments via e-mail, so make sure to add your e-mail address if it isn't linked up (especially if you have a question!)
