Handmade Summer Skirt Number Ten

This skirt was the very first one I made, and I have to mention my mom’s huge help in this summer skirt wardrobe endeavor! I always had the notion that I could NOT sew clothes, because I have a really hard time deciphering the patterns. My mom is a very good seamstress, I get my skills from her! She sat down with me one Saturday afternoon and we made this skirt. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was with her help and guidance! I went on a roll after this first one and made nine others, and for a couple I even used a different pattern, one that I was able to read and follow!
I love this fabric – I love tulips! I used two coordinating prints of the same design. The cotton is really super soft too, this is the softest feeling skirt of all of them that I made. I used Simplicity Pattern 2606.
I bought a bright orange cardigan to pair with this skirt, and I wear a pale yellow tank top under it along with my little yellow metal flower pin.

Since the tulips are also pink, yellow and white, I can pair the skirt with any of my other zillion cardigans and tank tops.

So that’s it, all 10 of my summer skirts!
