Alabama Skirt


I finished the skirt I started here, and it was a very enjoyable bout of hand-sewing. And boy, is it a comfortable skirt!


I didn't make particularly showy design choices, so some of the detail gets lost in the wearing, I think, but next time I'm going to bring in some punch! I'll also plan on binding the bottom edge as the jersey does tend to curl. Just the nature of the beast.

I've promised myself another Alabama Style project as soon as I finish Painting the Living Room.

Agree with 'good to be home' it's a gorgeous colour. How on earth did you find time to finish a skirt while painting the living room????!

It looks like a pretty basic, if you know what I mean - those things that get a lot of wear, because they're both beautiful and practical. :-)

Nice skirt.

I purchased the Alabama book based on your post and I love it! : ) It had detail ideas just like I like.

I'm so far behind. I'm going to stick with the circle skirt tutorial you did a few years ago.

I love it! I've looked at the book, but haven't found anywhere local to buy the fabric. Where do you purchase your jersey from?

Wow - I just found your blog this morning - lovely. We have so many things in common, I thought you and your girls would enjoy this as much as I do.
