An easy finish

I was just looking at the picture in my header again. Aren't those sunflowers just so gorgeous? Since the picture was taken by my friend Cindy, I can admire it myself. I just think they, along with daisies, are just the happiest flowers, don't you?

I wanted to share my finished skirt with you. I am so happy with it. I think you can see that it just has an elastic waist and was really easy to make. The style was meant to be a simple flared skirt but I wanted it to be fuller so I just played with the pattern. That made it take me a little longer but now that I know what I'm doing, this could be whipped up in an hour or two. Good to know for last minute occasions. (And we know I work best under pressure so there are a  lot of those!)

This just required sewing sides, front and back together, making a casing and putting in the elastic. Can be filed under easy-peasy! Do any of you have your own favorite easy-peasy pattern for clothing? 


  1. What a beautiful skirt!!! Those colors are gorgeous.

  2. So pretty. I love those simple skirts.

  3. Your skirt turned out great! Love the pretty fabric. You'll have lots of options to accessorize. I have a scoop-neck top pattern that I love. I need to make another!

  4. I do love sunflowers...tulips are a happy flower for me too! Love the bright colors in your skirt. I don't sew a stitch, so the whip up a skirt last minute is not something I can imagine!
