The winner for the best straight skirt is....
Denim Patchwork Skirt by Melissa of Until Wednesday Calls!
We don't have a lot of words for this one, just "W. O. W!" Some of our favorite features include
- The entire thing is recycled, from the skirt to the floral sheets used for the appliques
- She triple stitched each individual appliqued flower, then used metallic thread to do a zig zag stitch around each one too!
- She thought to add a coordinating belt, which just makes the outfit.
- Pair this with a white shirt and you're done getting dressed. We love a statement piece!
I need to copy this one, like now! Thanks for the inspiration, Melissa! Congratulations and we hope you enjoy your prizes!
Best Straight Skirt:
Mod Podge for Fabric, Simply Screen kit + Iron-ons from Mod Podge Rocks
And onto some of our other favorites:
We love the off-center buttons and curved hem of this corduroy skirt by Sabra of Sew a Straight Line. If you love it too, there's good news - she made a tutorial! And if you're not a follower of Sabra's blog, you should be - it's one of our favorites. She's currently sewing her way through her old college sewing textbook, so check her blog out first if you need help with any of the basics (seams, pockets, etc).
From Becky Waldrop, we have another take on a rainbow skirt. We just can't get enough of that familiar, smile-inducing line of colors.
I chose the close up of this skirt by Subtle Tee instead of her modeling it so you could see all the fun details. Those pleats are just adorable, and we love the teeny tiny ric rac and barely-there flare at the hemline.
I had to include this little number by Chica's Creations to inspire all of you who are new to sewing, or haven't given it a shot yet. This skirt is so simple, but it is one of our favorites. The cut, the fit, and the fabric make it just perfect. You could make this too!
The hemming on this skirt by Frikadel59 is so unique - we love how she just followed the pattern on the fabric.
