My Anna Skirt



A few weeks ago I saw Anna's (from Noodleheadtutorial for this skirt over at Crafterhours for their skirt week. Instant L.O.V.E. I knew I was going to make this skirt. I pinned it immediately...heart Pinterest. At the beginning of Spring, I had declared that this Summer was going to be a skirt summer. Alas with all the moving, I had yet to make myself a single skirt I could wear.

That is until now...woohoo.

I had everything I needed to make this skirt, so I whipped it out in an afternoon. 

Since my fabric choice was this lovely patriotic stripe IKEA fabric, I made sure to get it done before our trip to the fireworks. I seriously love wearing this skirt.


I may have worn it three times since making it. I have paired it with white sandals and red-painted toes, yellow ballet flats, or my bare feet while cutely parading through my house...after all that is the only way to parade through one's home.


You really can't go wrong with this skirt. The tutorial is FREE. The tutorial is easy to follow. I love that the skirt has a flat front, yet gathered back so there is no need to put in a zipper...a woohoo. I made it out of a heavier fabric, but it would be lovely and easy breezy out of a light cotton. She even gives you tips if you want to put in pockets. That is my plan for my next skirt...

because, oh yes...

there will be another skirt. 

Thanks Anna.

It looks great! I think it would look good with a pop of red somewhere like a belt a red flower or necklace. You look great in it!

What type of fabric did you use? I assume not a knit from IKEA... Just curious! :)

Danielle,
I actually used a heavy fabric from IKEA. It was what I had on hand. It made the skirt a little stiff, but still wearable. I would not use a knit for this skirt unless it was stiffer because you want the skirt to hold some shape. Cotton is probably best.
