    So many great ideas! I’m pinning all the skirts =) That’s my thing for the summer, I want to wear more and don’t always like what’s in stores, so making will be the solution.

    I just made a knit circle skirt and knit maxi skirt, from simple tutorials: http://icandy-handmade.com/2011/07/tutorial-ice-cream-social-skirt.html and http://crazylittleprojects.com/2012/09/sew-your-own-maxi-skirt-its-easy.html

    I didn’t iron though, was working quickly, and the hem on the circle skirt isn’t so great. I plan to smooth it over with a ribbon sewn ontop! The maxi skirt I pinned before hemming and that turned out better, wearing it now. Can’t wait to try these other patterns!
